Worlds of Wonder

Ages 8 - adult

Our planetarium spaceship blasts off on a tour that takes us to each member of the solar system. All nine planets, some of their moons and minor members of the Solar System reveal fascinating spacescapes. Their often-hostile environments and similarities are explained by mission specialists on-board. Then our focus turns to the stars while the planetarium host points out the constellations of the season on the way home.
