Solar System

An updated solar system show!

We embark on an odyssey through the solar system.   The show begins with the solar system's centerpiece, the Sun, and ends in the realm of the Trans-Neptunian objects beyond Pluto.

Join us for this fantastic journey through our own small part of the galaxy.

Show Duration:  35 minutes

(Note: each show presentation includes a live night sky tour lasting 10 - 15 minutes.    So, the duration of the entire presentation is approximately 50 minutes.)
