The show will be presented by UAA Astronomer and Astrophotographer, Dr. Travis Rector

Everyone loves astronomy picture. But have you ever wondered if they are real? Do they show objects as they really look? And how they are made? In a special all-live presentation, UAA Astronomer Travis Rector answers all these questions and more. Over the last 20 years Dr. Rector has been privileged to make more than 200 color pictures with some of the world's largest and most powerful telescopes, including those at Kitt Peak National Observatory, Gemini Observatory, and even the Hubble Space Telescope. He will share a behind-the-scenes look at what it's like to use these telescopes, and how pictures are made from the images they collect. He will use the planetarium to share with you stories from his new book, Coloring the Universe.

Ticket reservations are available online only. Remaining tickets will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the door on the day of the show. The planetarium will open for seating 30 minutes before the start of each show. You must be in the theater 10 minutes before the show starts. Reserved seats will be released after this time to stand-by customers. There is no entry after the show begins.
