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.
Saturdays and Sundays 11:15 a.m.:
Zoo in the Sky (a show for young children)
Zoo in the Sky is for younger children. It explores the seasonal animal constellations and the stories, myths, and legends about them.
Saturdays and Sundays 3:15 p.m.:
Seasonal Sky takes you on a trip through the night sky with stories, constellations, and interesting astronomical sights. The show changes with the seasons, so make sure to come back again and again.
To help illustrate the planetarium shows, the MOST Education Staff utilizes a computer program entitled “Stellarium.” This is 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.
