The Planets

Audience:  Grades 5 thru Adult
Total Time:  90 minutes includes planetarium show and a staff led live sky tour.

The Planets is a tour of our solar system's eight planetary systems and Trans Neptunian objects including Pluto. This visually stunning tour of our solar system features recent imagery and video from NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA). The Planets is narrated by the actress Kate Mulgrew, well known as Captain Janeway of the 7-year television series "Star Trek: Voyager". The tour ends visiting a few planets around other stars and the cosmic forces that bring solar systems into being. The original musical score is by internationally acclaimed "space music" composer/performer John Serrier. 


For a customized group experience the staff led tour of the sky will be adjusted appropriately to allow for the group's specific customization within the alloted total time.
