Calendar of Showtimes

The Planetarium’s live, interactive program distinguishes the Noble from all others. Thanks to two new, all-digital star balls within a 40-foot dome cover, you can visit the Milky Way galaxy and travel up to 13.7 billion light years away – and ask questions of Planetarium staff along the way. In addition to viewing the constellations and stars visible in the sky, you’ll also learn about current astronomical events of the day.
