Show Descriptions

Manitoba Skies

Take a guided tour of the night sky and discover current constellations, planets, and celestial events currently visible in Manitoba skies. The show is presented live by Planetarium Science Communicators and highlights the latest discoveries.


In My Backyard with Fred Penner 

A classic returns! Join Winnipeg’s best-known children’s entertainer, Fred Penner, as he explores things large and small, from the colors of the rainbow to the reasons for the seasons. The show has been completely re-imagined for the DIGISTAR full-dome video system. Young scientists are encouraged to sing and participate while learning about the planets, constellations, meteors, the moon, and more. Recommended for children ages 4-7.




CapCom GO! The Apollo Story

Relive the glory days of space exploration and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first Apollo moon landing, the first time humans set foot on another world. The Apollo program inspired a generation with its bold exploration and amazing scientific and engineering spin-offs that power our world today. What was it like? Where will we go next?
