Family Show.

Sundays 2:30 p.m.

You don't need a spaceship to learn about the sun, moon, and stars-just a little imagination! When Big Bird, Elmo, and their friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu, take an imaginary trip to the moon, they learn amazing things along the way.


Feature Show.

Fridays and Saturdays 8:00 p.m.

This award-winning Google Lunar XPRIZE fulldome planetarium show chronicles teams around the world competing for the largest international incentivized prize in history, by landing a robotic spacecraft on the Moon. The show opens with the first era of space exploration in the late 1960s and early 1970s and ends with a stunning glimpse of a plausible scenario for our future on the Moon.
