Planetarium & Science Center public shows

Planetarium & Science Center staff welcomes the public to enjoy family evening shows on Friday, October 5 and Friday, October 19. On October 5, Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity will be shown at 6:00 p.m. and again at 7:00 p.m. On October 19, The Secrets of Gravity – In the Footsteps of Albert Einstein will be presented at 6:00 and 7:00 p.m.

Black Holes: The Other Side of Infinity
There's a place from which nothing escapes, not even light, where time and space literally come to an end. It's at this point, inside this fantastic riddle, that black holes exert their sway over the cosmos. Zip through otherworldly wormholes, experience the creation of the Milky Way Galaxy, and witness the violent death of a star and subsequent birth of a black hole.

The Secrets of Gravity – In the Footsteps of Albert Einstein
The show follows the adventures of twelve-year-old Luke who is far more interested in the universe and its secrets than boring magic spells. He is fascinated by the stars, the universe, and the laws of nature. One night, he sneaks into the Albert Einstein Museum where he meets ALBYX3, a small, clever, but rather quirky robot who knows all about Albert Einstein and his theories. ALBY takes Luke on a magical journey through space and time during which they not only uncover the secrets of gravity but also learn about friendship and imagination.

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 5:00 p.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.
