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?
This 35-minute show is designed for families with children, and includes an introduction to the current night sky.
Take a live guided tour of Manitoba’s summer sky. This live show, presented by our planetarium staff, highlights the constellations, planets, and celestial events that you can see on summer evenings, and answer your space questions.
Ice shapes Earth, and many other planets and moons in our solar system. It drives the climate, affects ocean currents, and reshapes land as it expands during ice ages. Melting ice caused by climate change is also transforming our way of life. Explore these changes and see Greenland without its ice shield. Travel to other worlds like Saturn, Titan and Europa and learn how our observations of other worlds helps us to understand our own.
