  • Overview

    Super Heroes in the Sky!: Zeus and Jupiter! Hermes and Mercury! Aphrodite and Venus! These ancient Gods from Greek and Roman mythology helped ancient astronomers interpret the strangeness of the night sky. This program will explore the myths surrounding the planets and constellations and will demonstrate how these early astronomers continue to influence our modern scientists today. Appropriate for ages 8 and up.

    PLEASE NOTE:  Based on the nature of our programming, once the star program has begun and the planetarium doors are closed, there is no admittance.  Best policy is to arrive before the scheduled program time to be assured admittance.
