The Dr. and Mrs. Herbert J. Silverman PLANETARIUM
Follow the stars in the 50-seat Silverman Planetarium with its 24-foot domed ceiling, which plays host to thousands of stars brilliantly displayed by our Apollo Star Projector. Lean back as the lights dim and prepare to meet the constellations.

Due to the intimate nature of the planetarium presentation, guests must be seated in the planetarium before the show begins. The doors will close precisely at the advertised show time, and no late admittance is possible. Thank you for your understanding.

                       

Regular show times:

Saturdays and Sundays 11:15 a.m.:
Zoo in the Sky, a show for young children that explores the seasonal animal constellations and the stories, myths, and legends about them.

Saturdays and Sundays 3:15 p.m.:
Seasonal Sky, for ages 8 and older, takes you on a trip through the night sky with stories, constellations, and interesting astronomical sights. The show changes with the season, so make sure to come back.

Special holiday shows for school break weeks:
The MOST is open every day during the school vacation (Dec. 20 through Jan. 4) except for Christmas Day, Dec. 25. Planetarium shows will be offered every day during the vacation, with a special holiday show offered from Dec. 20 to 24.
Santa's Sky: Showing daily at 11:15 a.m. from Dec. 20 to 24
Winter Zoo in the Sky: Showing daily at 11:15 a.m. from Dec. 26 to Jan. 4

To help illustrate the planetarium shows, the MOST education staff members utilize a computer program entitled "Stellarium," a free open-source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars, or a telescope. You can download the free software for home use at stellarium.org. Download our Stellarium First Time User Walk-Through: Stellarium Walk-Through for First Time Users.

The Planetarium is also available for Special Shows for groups of 20 or more. Call 425-9068 ext. 2141 for details.
