Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

7:00 PM to 8:00 PM

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

An omni-dome (full dome) presentation about the IBEX (Interstellar Boundary Explorer) probe.      Launched in 2008, the IBEX craft collects energized neutral particles emitted from the heliosphere: the "bubble" enclosing the solar system.   These collections enable the IBEX probe to construct an image of the membrane surrounding us.  The same membrane that protects the solar system from harmful galactic particles.

How does the IBEX probe work?    How does it communicate with Earth?

Join us for this fascinating full-dome show about the IBEX probe and its bold mission to explore the solar system's final frontier. 

Show duration:  31 minutes

(Note: show presentation includes a night sky tour, so the entire program is approximately 45 minutes.)

For more information about this probe, visit http://ibex.swri.edu/

Little Star That Could

THE LITTLE STAR THAT COULD

Full dome show

(Presented in the memory of Steve Innes 1955-2011)

A little yellow star travels through the galaxy in search of planets that will give it its special name.  During his journey, this star learns about the many types of stars that live in the galaxy.    Hot blue stars; cool red stars; double stars, large stars and much more.

Produced by the Audio Visual Imagineering Company and based on the popular planetarium show of the same name, "The Little Star That Could"  is an engaging and fun show that introduces your child to the wonders of stellar astronomy.

A splendid star show for the entire family!

This omni-dome show uses the entire dome as the screen for a visually immersive experience.

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!

Little Star That Could

THE LITTLE STAR THAT COULD

Full dome show

(Presented in the memory of Steve Innes 1955-2011)

A little yellow star travels through the galaxy in search of planets that will give it its special name.  During his journey, this star learns about the many types of stars that live in the galaxy.    Hot blue stars; cool red stars; double stars, large stars and much more.

Produced by the Audio Visual Imagineering Company and based on the popular planetarium show of the same name, "The Little Star That Could"  is an engaging and fun show that introduces your child to the wonders of stellar astronomy.

A splendid star show for the entire family!

This omni-dome show uses the entire dome as the screen for a visually immersive experience.

$5.50 - adults;   $5.00 children

Solar System

"EIGHT PLANETS AND COUNTING" OMNI DOME SHOW!

We're offering an updated version of the "Eight Planets and Counting" program!     Humanity's knowledge of the solar system has changed dramatically within the last few years.    As we know the International Astronomical Union has demoted Pluto, but astronomers have also found an array of other bodies, called "Trans-Neptunian Objects."  

The omni-dome "Eight Planets and Counting" program guides you through the solar system: from our parent star, the Sun, out to the realm beyond Neptune.   Along the way, we'll visit each of the eight planets in turn, we'll explore the Moon, and we'll fly through the asteroid belt. 

Join us for this fantastic full dome odyssey through the solar system!
