Our Place in Space

Ages 12 - adult

From the center of the Earth to the edge of the universe, this planetarium perspective demonstrates where we are. The Universe arranges itself into parts and clusters of parts that can be seen from Earth. A survey of these and the vast distances between them help us understand where we fit as a living planet orbiting one average star. The planetarium host also conducts a tour of the constellations in the sky this season.

This program can include an optional star chart
activity for middle school to adult audiences.
