UofT Planetarium: Imagining the Size of the Universe (SOLD OUT)

7:00pm to 10:00pm

Showtimes: 7:00pm, 8:00pm, and 9:00pm

There are many misconceptions about our universe, and the most common one is also the simplest – its size. Our universe is much bigger than we imagine it to be, and only through visual aid (such as a planetarium) can one really grasp the true dimensions of it. This planetarium show will journey through the different scales of the universe, starting with familiar objects like the moon and the Earth, and ending with the furthest reaches of the observable universe.

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.

If you have questions please contact planetarium@universe.utoronto.ca
