Often, when we think of the Solar System, we think of the planets and the Sun and nothing more. But what about all the other stuff? There are millions of asteroids in the asteroid belt, tens of millions of objects in the Kuiper belt, and probably trillions of objects in the Oort cloud—not to mention the hundreds of moons and dozens of dwarf planets that are members of the Sun’s extended family.

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.
