Come and learn about stars, constellations, and planets visible in the sky during this spring. The Hubble Space Telescope has provided incredible images of great details to astronomers, and made an astonishing array of discoveries – from objects in our solar system to the most distant galaxies at limits of the observable universe. In this narrated slide program we catch glimpses of solar system objects, such as the Moon, clouds on dusty Mars, a comet’s crash into Jupiter, storms on Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, and the faraway worlds around Pluto. Beyond our solar system, they explore protoplanetary disks in Orion and other regions of star births. Finally, kids will observe colliding galaxies, jets of particles shooting from active galactic nuclei powered by supermassive black holes, the effects of gravitational lenses, and deep-field views of the most distant galaxies ever seen. The show is recommended for kids ages 8 and up. General admission is $6 for one show, $10 for two shows and Student admission is $4 for one show, $7 for two shows.
