The Night Sky Show

Fri May 31, 2019
7:00pm to 9:00pm PT
6 and up
Adults $6; Children (12 & under) $5

The college's Digistar II planetarium projector recreates the ever-changing night sky, as it would look away from the city's lights. The 50-minute show is updated weekly with the latest news in space exploration and astronomy.

Families are welcome to ask all of their astronomy-related questions.

The Night Sky Show runs from 7pm-7:50pm. A second show is presented at 8pm; this is a more detailed program on a specific topic that varies by week. Check the online schedule to see the show planned for a specific date. A second ticket is required for the second show; there is a $1 discount when purchasing both together.

Shows are held in the John Drescher Planetarium, in Drescher Hall Room 223. Parking for the event is free anywhere on campus.
