A part of our new "Friday Night Lights" planetarium programs, enjoy a special evening presentation in the James H. Lynn Planetarium and Science Theater on the first Friday of each month. Ranging from live shows about the local night sky to feature presentations, we offer a new program each month.


The Sun, Our Living Star

Friday, September 6 at 7 PM

The Sun is our nearest star and our planet’s powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather and all life. The Sun has shone on our world for four and a half billion years. Although it is a typical dwarf star, the Sun consumes 600 million tons of hydrogen each second and is 500 times as massive as all the planets combined. Explore the secrets of our star and experience the never-before-seen images of the Sun’s violent surface in this immersive program.
