March Planetarium Schedule

Below is the show schedule for March 2016.  Please note that we will be closed in observance of Good Friday on March 25.

  Star Talk: The Spring Skies


As we approach the Vernal Equinox and the first day of spring, the dazzling winter constellations are moving into the western sky and the spring constellations are rising higher in the east.  Although the spring constellations are not as brilliant those that are high in the sky during the winter months, Jupiter will shine brightly during the evening hours. This live talk will focus on the spring night sky and the visible planets.  

  • Friday, March 4 at 7:00 PM
