HE SOUTHWORTH PLANETARIUM RINGS IN THE NEW YEAR DOWN IN OUR STAR DOME!

What is "New Year's Planetarium?!"
A celebration of the new year down in our star dome theatre. We started this program as a small addition to New Year's Portland.    We later learned that New Year's Portland ended sometime in the Mid-Victorian and therefore we were adding to something that no longer existed.   So, the event is now a bit metaphysical, which is just dandy.

During New Year's Planetarium, you may see any of our shows, can explore the night sky as it will appear in the new year and you may watch the TIMES SQUARE countdown from our underground dome and then flee away from any traffic congestion.
