Saturn & Beyond  (NEW!)
Saturn’s rings are one of the most beautiful sights in the solar system. They can be seen clearly even with a small backyard telescope. Astronomers have known about these rings for over 400 years, yet they still present many questions. In 2004 the Cassini orbiter and the Huygens probe reached Saturn. During this show we will explore the mysterious features seen by these spacecraft.

Undiscovered Worlds (NEW!)
The Search Beyond our Sun explores a timeless question: Do other planets like Earth exist? Within the past 20 years, astronomers have discovered hundreds of planets orbiting other stars. Travel to distant stars and fly up to exotic planets and see them up close in the planetarium. Experience the science shifting our perspectives on humanity’s place in the cosmos.
