Night Vision is presented most Thursday and Saturday evenings at 6:45 pm. It is free for members and $2 (plus tax) for everyone else. Get your tickets here or at the Clark Planetarium box office.

Gateway to the Stars takes place under our dome sky and is performed live by our planetarium experts. The show highlights the noteworthy astronomical sights and current events in an informal, conversational setting. It features animation, full-dome CG, and deep-space photography to illustrate the physiognomy of the night sky in our high-resolution, digital planetarium. We’ll discuss practical considerations of observing the sky with or without a telescope; this is also a great place to bring any questions you’ve ever had about astronomy and stargazing.
Gateway to the Starts is presented the first Saturday of each month at 6:45 pm. It is free for members and $2 (plus tax) for everyone else. Get your tickets here or at the Clark Planetarium box office.
