July 2018 Planetarium Schedule

Below is the schedule for July 2018. 

 

Star Talk: The Summer Skies

The summer constellations are high in the sky with brightly shining constellations such as Scorpius and Sagittarius.  The Summer Triangle, which encompasses three constellations, is also a prominent feature that is high in the sky.  Several planets will adorn the evening skies.  Jupiter blazes high in the evening sky and Venus is visible for a short time just after nightfall.  Saturn rises at sunset and Mars a couple of hours later. Join us for a live star talk that will explore the summer constellations and visible planets as well as the folklore associated with them.

Origins of Life

Origins of Life will take you on an inspirational journey through time beginning with the Big Bang and continuing through the formation of the Universe, stars and solar systems, the first life on Earth, and the great extinctions. The journey ends with a discussion of our search for life beyond planet Earth. This celebration of life on Earth features many recent discoveries related to life science, demonstrating that if there was ever a time that science made its greatest advances, it’s right now!
