Rocket away from the Earth on a tour through our solar system and beyond. Starting with highlights from the Toronto night sky, this show will take you on an epic cosmic journey. We’ll follow human spacecraft on their visits to the planets and moons of the solar system, then warp far beyond the furthest reaches of human exploration to visit exoplanets, galaxies, quasars, and the very edge of the observable universe. This show is intended for audiences aged 12 and older, although families with younger children are welcome to attend.

Your show will be approximately 50 minutes long. All of our shows are presented live and in person by University of Toronto astronomers. Plenty of time is allocated for questions from the audience.
