LSC’s all-live signature show, Wonders of the Night Sky, is an exhilarating experience that explores our stars and beyond.
See the galaxy as it appears to the naked eye, as well as through the eyes of NASA’s robot probes, of the Hubble Space Telescope, and arrays of telescopes from around our planet.
A portion of the show is set aside to include the latest breaking news in astronomy and aerospace, taking full advantage of LSC’s new Digistar 6 full dome system, which allows seamless passage from the night sky to another planet to the heart of another galaxy.
Experience an immersive, full-dome movie with an interactive live presentation.
In To Worlds Beyond, you’ll tour the planets of our solar system—a tour that incorporates the latest information about the solar system as gathered by a fleet of robot probes. Travel from the hellacious surface of Venus, to the vast mountains and canyons of Mars, to the spewing methane geysers of Neptune’s giant moon Triton.
Before the film, a live presenter shows the audience where the planets are in the night sky that very evening.
Join Sesame Street friends in an out-of-this-world planetarium show!
