For centuries, humanity has wondered whether we are alone in the universe. Now, we are one step closer to knowing the answer. With the discovery in 1995 of the first planet orbiting another sun-like star, we now know that planets are not unique to our solar system but are actually quite common. Explore what makes a planet “Earth-like” and take a tour of several worlds that just might fit the conditions we’re looking for. From water worlds to molten landscapes, inhabitable moons to planets with multiple suns, these exotic worlds aren’t just science fiction anymore!
General Admission: $7.50 per person for ages 5 and above. Doors open 30 minutes before show starts for ticket sales.
No food or drinks inside Auditorium.
The presentation and Tour of the Night Sky takes about an hour.
