Come experience the high definition, digital technology of the Stargazer’s Planetarium. Recline under the dome and let one of our shows take you soaring through the solar system or far beyond the Milky Way.
Separate timed ticket(s) are required. Please consult a Guest Services Representative or your Daily Schedule for shows, times, price, and availability. Ask about our double feature discount (available only on days that we offer two shows).
The Planetarium has been upgraded with two high-resolution projectors that produce an absolutely breathtaking view of the universe. Things that were not visible with the old system now show up with greater brightness and beautiful clarity. Colors are more vibrant (check out the luminous, blue supergiants beyond the edge of the Milky Way!) and text is more focused making it easier to read. Even if you’ve been to the planetarium before, come join us again and see the universe in a whole new light.
We have three different shows for you to choose from. The show(s) you have the opportunity to see will depend on the day and season when you visit us.
Every day, we offer our extremely popular main show, the inspirational Created Cosmos. Visit stars, nebulae, galaxies, superclusters, and more as you tour the known universe. This show will give you a better understanding of the immensity of the universe and the power of the One who created it. This show is also available to order on DVD.
On most days we also offer a second presentation, Worlds of Creation. In this show you stay “close to home” as you take a trip through our solar system visiting each planet and their major moons. A few of the many things you’ll see include the red, barren surface of Mars, the Great Red Spot of Jupiter, volcanoes of Io, a moon of Jupiter, and a close up view of the rings of Saturn. Be prepared to see God’s creative hand as you view the planets—including Earth—from a whole new perspective.
If you visit us during the Christmas season, you’ll have a chance to see The Christmas Star. In this show Dr. Jason Lisle narrates and shares possible explanations for the “star” that led the wise men to Christ. He concludes that . . . well, maybe we shouldn’t give away the ending. Join us for this new look at an intriguing part of the Christmas season.
No matter which show(s) you choose to see, you’ll come away with a better understanding of God and His creative power.
