Presented by Planetarium Manager, Omega Smith
Have you ever looked up at the night sky and wondered what you were seeing? What is that bright object on the horizon? And where is the Big Dipper? In a special all-live presentation, we'll take you on a tour of the night sky and show you what you can see during our long Winter nights. You'll learn about what constellations are visible, how to look for the moon, and what planets you can see. And best of all, it will be a balmy 68 degrees inside the planetarium!
This special edition of Stars of the Alaskan Sky will focus on the mythology in the constellations that remind us of the many forms of love.
"Stars of the Alaskan Sky" is one hour in length, consisting of a live lecture and fulldome presentation by a professional astronomer. 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.
