Virtual Planetarium Show
Join the Spanel Planetarium for a live virtual show to explore the stars and constellations you can see from your own backyard! The 45-minute live presentation will be hosted on Zoom, tickets cost $10 per attending computer and include a downloadable star chart for October.
What is a planetarium? A planetarium is a place you can go to learn about astronomy and our universe! These theatres have a domed roof, onto which is projected a simulation of the night sky, planets, nebula, and more, and are usually accompanied by a presenter who is there to tell you about the topic of the day. Due to COVID-19 concerns, we will not be using our facility and have instead adapted our programming to an online format! Now you'll get to view the universe and talk to the presenter all from the comfort of your own home! And a plus side, you'll get to have that popcorn, which usually isn't allowed in a planetarium.
