September 2015 Planetarium Shows

Our Public Planetarium Shows Begin at 7:30 PM

Looking Back- Saturdays, September 5,12, & 26 at 7:30 PM

What would it be like to look billions of light years across the universe at our solar system? Come join our Resident Astronomer, Doug Horacek, as he takes you on a journey from across the universe looking back through intergalactic space and through stellar space at our little blue dot among the stars.

Fall Skies - Saturday, September 19 at 7:30 PM

You are welcome to attend a  "family friendly" show on our Autumn Sky.

For some reason Mrs. Brenda Rogers always seems to need help when she presents!!!  Children and sometimes even adults will be asked to volunteer to help demonstrate certain aspects of astronomy. Please attend this fun-filled presentation that just happens to be educational. As always, after her presentation the lights will be turned down and off then she will point out constellations of our current night sky.

Remember that if weather permits, there will be telescopes open for viewing.

See you there!

Admission for Saturday Planetarium Shows:

Admission is $5 for Adults, $3 for Students, and free for children under 6, as well as VBAS members. Weather permitting, you will have the opportunity to look at some of the wonders of the universe through our telescopes following the planetarium program with the help of our experienced and knowledgeable observing crew.
