Astronomy Night School

Back under the dome again!  We are thrilled to bring you into the planetarium and show you how the night sky works.  This fall, we will be offering a series of lessons about the fundamentals of observational astronomy.  Whether you are a beginner or an expert, there’s nothing like seeing it in the planetarium’s immersive 3-D environment.  Each program will also feature a full dome show related to the astronomy lesson.  And of course, we’ll finish up with a tour of that month’s upcoming “sky”lights.  We really hope to see you there!  (Ages 10-Adult)
