Tour of the Winter SkyThe sky on cold winter nights has some of the brightest stars and the best-known constellations. Some of these stars are truly supergiants, hundreds of times bigger than our Sun – while others are dwarfs the size of Earth. Along the Milky Way, there are colorful clouds where new stars are being born. Enjoy a guided tour of this celestial wonderland and take a trip to the North Pole to experience the Northern Lights.

Planet 9In July 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft gave us our first close look at Pluto. The New Horizons flyby was big news, and the pictures it sent back to Earth reveal a world far more complex than anyone realized. Follow Mike Brown and his team at CalTech as they uncover other dwarf worlds, whose orbits take them deep into the far reaches of the Solar System. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? Join us on the hunt!

A Field Trip to the StarsPresented live by Dr. Ronald Kaitchuck. There was a time when humans dreamt about flying like the birds. Some people also dreamt of traveling into space to see what the stars were all about. While today we can fly, we are still unable to make cosmic trips to the stars. But we can do the next-best thing; we can use telescopic images and the planetarium’s projection technology to simulate travel to amazing places. Join us in the Brown Planetarium for a cosmic field trip to see giant stars that dwarf the Sun, places where stars are being born and the remnants of those that died long ago. You will fly through clusters of thousands of stars and see some bizarre planets. Finally, we will explore the mysteries of the black hole at the center of our galaxy.
