Tour the cosmos with our mobile planetarium. Currently placed in Hangar B, our 25 foot planetarium enables group tours, field trips, and regular guests to take a tour of our skies and beyond with seasonal astronomy programs.
- Google Lunar XPrize – In case you haven’t heard, the Moon is trending again… and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they’re going back to the moon for good. The educational 24-minute Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome planetarium show, Back To The Moon For Good, chronicles teams around the world competing for the largest incentivized prize in history, by landing a robotic spacecraft on the Moon for the first time in more than 40 years. To win the Google Lunar XPRIZE, a team must land a robotic spacecraft on the Moon, navigate 500 meters over the lunar surface, and send video, images and data back to Earth. This global competition is designed to spark imagination and inspire a renewed commitment to space exploration, not by governments or countries – but by the citizens of the world.
Show Times: 10:30AM, 1:30PM and 3:30PM daily
Due to the use of our Planetarium in Field Trips, shows during the week may be cancelled due to a reserved program.
