Our popular $5 Friday Night Shows are open to the public and feature indoor stargazing plus a special topic that changes 5 times a year.
Buying tickets online is strongly recommended. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. If a show has not sold out, you may buy tickets with cash or credit card in the lobby outside of the Planetarium starting 30 minutes before the show begins.
Doors close 5 minutes after the show begins. No late admissions. If you purchase tickets online, please arrive at least 10 minutes before the show starts to check in at the ticket table with your last name. No-shows risk having their seats at the program start time.

Since 1959, seven nations have sent over 50 spacecraft to the Moon including 6 people who stepped onto another world. What will it take to get us to Mars?

Enjoy indoor stargazing with a tour of the local night sky free of light pollution followed by the opportunity to ask questions of astronomer Jean Creighton.
