Planetarium welcomes public to evening shows September 7 and 21

Planetarium & Science Center public shows

Planetarium & Science Center staff welcomes the public to enjoy family evening shows on Friday, September 7 and Friday, September 21. Guests may attend the premiere of a new program, Phantom of the Universe, at 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. on September 7. On September 21 at 6:00 p.m. or 7:00 p.m., the family favorite Perfect Little Planet will be presented.

Phantom of the Universe
Phantom of the Universe showcases an exciting exploration of dark matter. The show reveals the first hints of dark matter's existence, then plummets deep underground to see the most sensitive dark matter detector on Earth. From there, it journeys across space and time to the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, speeding alongside particles before they collide in visually stunning explosions of light and sound.

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.
