Planetarium & Science Center public shows

Planetarium & Science Center staff welcomes the public to enjoy family summer matinee shows on June 6. Guests may choose to see Earth, Moon & Sun at 10:00 a.m. or 12:00 p.m., or Perfect Little Planet at 11:00 a.m. or 1:00 p.m.

Earth, Moon & Sun
How do the Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system, and what is the myth and science behind it? Why does the Sun rise and set? Why do we see different constellations during different seasons? What is an eclipse? Learn about the Moon's phases and orbit. Explore past and future space travel to our moon and beyond.

Perfect Little Planet
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, dive over the ice cliffs of Miranda, sail through the rings of Saturn, feel the lightning storms at Jupiter, and walk on the surface of Mars. This is the solar system journey for space travelers of all ages.

The Planetarium & Science Center is located at 11535 Avenue 264 in Visalia, on the southwest corner of Mooney Boulevard and Avenue 264. Tickets are available at the Planetarium office only after 9:00 a.m. on the day of the show. Tickets are $4 for adults and $3 for children 11 and under. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No late seating is offered once the planetarium doors close.
