There has been a change in programming. 
On June 4th and 11th at 1:00 PM, the planetarium will be presenting
 "More Than Meets the Eye" instead of our advertised program, "Hotter Than Blue."

More Than Meets the Eye

This beautiful sky show presents the night sky from several perspectives.
The program first shows the stars, moon and planets as seen from our own back yards.
It then zooms in with binoculars, telescopes
and finally the sensitive cameras on board our finest space probes.

Admission:  $4
