The April Fool's show!


Friday double feature!

Friday, April 1, 2016    7:00 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.


A relatively new planetarium tradition.  Unfortunately, it's a rather stupid one.  "THE APRIL FOOL'S SHOW" is a complete mystery.  We have no idea which program we'll present until the very moment the program starts.    

This year, we're offering TWO April Fools' shows.

One at 7:00 p.m.

Another at 8:30 p.m.

(We're offering two April Fools' shows this year because we always offer two evening shows on Friday evening.  This year, April Fool's just happens to occur on Friday.)

It could be:

Eight Planets and Counting: full dome version

Natural Selection!

"Season of Light" Full Dome show

Two Small Pieces of Glass: full dome version

The Little Star That Could: full dome version

IBEX: The Search for the Edge of the Solar System

"Transit of Venus" Show!
