SHOW DESCRIPTIONS

OPENING MARCH 24 - Planet Hunters 

Planet Hunters is a brand-new planetarium show that explores the new worlds being discovered by modern astronomy. More than 1,000 new planets have been discovered orbiting other stars in our galaxy. Planet Hunters explains the science behind these new discoveries, which include "Hot Jupiters", icy planets, and ocean worlds that might harbor the building blocks of life. The show includes a brief night sky update featuring the locations of the latest planet discoveries.


Perfect Little Planet

Imagine the ultimate space vacation! Discover our solar system through a new set of eyes – a family from another star system seeking the perfect vacation spot. Fly over the surface of Pluto, our best known Dwarf Planet. Dive over the ice cliffs of Miranda. Sail through the rings of Saturn. Feel the lightning storms of Jupiter, and walk on the surface of Mars. Which destination would you choose? A solar system journey for space travelers of all ages. This 35-minute show is designed for families with children, and includes an introduction to the current night sky.


 Live with the Stars

Take a guided tour of the night sky as seen from Manitoba. This live show is presented by our planetarium staff, and covers current constellations, planets, and celestial events. This 35-minute show is designed for general audiences.
