From Earth to the Universe

Saturday at 4 pm

Recommended for Adults and Children ages 8+; 45 minutes 

The beauty of the night sky has inspired awe and wonder for as long as there have been people. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos.  Come revel in the splendor of the Universe from the planets in our Solar System, the colorful nebula and star clusters of the Milky Way, out to the glittering myriads of galaxies beyond. Along the way, visitors will learn about the history of astronomy, the invention of the telescope, and the giant observatories that allow us to probe the furthest reaches of space. This 30-minute voyage through space is followed by a 15-minute tour of the night sky and planets.

Forward to the Moon

Friday at 8:30 pm and Saturday at 5:30 pm.

Recommended for Adults and Children ages 9+; 45 minutes 

NASA’s 21st century Artemis program, named after the Greek moon Goddess, is the next step in our mission to explore the universe and land the astronauts back on the surface of the Moon for the first time in more than 50 years. Using innovative technologies to explore more of the lunar surface than ever before, NASA plans to use what they learn on the Moon to take the next giant leap: sending the first astronauts to Mars. This 30-minute voyage to the Moon is followed by a short tour of the night sky and planets.  


This show was produced by the University of Colorado’s Fiske Planetarium in collaboration with TEND Studio and is narrated by Kari Byron from “Crash Test World” and “MythBusters.”
