7:00pm to 10:15pm

Showtimes: 7:00pm, 8:10pm, 9:15pm

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.

Please arrive 15 minutes before your show. To ensure the best experience for guests during shows, the doors to the planetarium will be closed and locked to outside entry for the duration of each show. If you arrive after the scheduled start time of your show, you will not be able to enter the planetarium and your ticket will not be refunded or transferred to another show. For the first show on each evening, the doors will open 15 minutes prior to the show. For subsequent shows, doors will open 5 minutes prior to the show.
