Upcoming Shows and Times

All shows start with a tour of the nighttime sky as well as some other amazing sights in space using our full-dome Digistar 5 projection system (manufactured by Evans & Sutherland). Many of these are following by a professionally produced dull-dome multimedia shows on various exciting astronomical topics.
