Tonight's Sky: Camping Under the Stars

Golden Pond Planetarium - 238 Visitor Center Dr, LBL

Dec 1, 2022 thru Dec 31, 2022 - Various Times

Many people envision a brilliant rendering of the night sky star field displayed on the domed theater screen whenever they think of a planetarium. All planetariums did tours of the night sky once upon a time. We used analog star instruments and it was the highlight of the programming. As our media moved more towards digital technology, many planetariums began featuring more dynamic offerings using all the new bells and whistles technology afforded. We have also gone in this brave new direction, but we will also always keep one block each day dedicated to a live star show. This is that show, the one where we spend the full 45 minutes touring the sky, highlighting star patterns and planets currently visible in the early evening. We also highlight and discuss locating deep-sky objects, these are those objects of interest which are a little farther from home, things you may want to search for if you have a medium to large size telescope. And of course, all this brought to you via a live presentation with a real person talking to you. This is a live interpretation of the night sky and may not be suitable for younger audiences who might find it challenging to sit quietly through a live presentation. Admission fees apply.

From Earth to the Universe

Golden Pond Planetarium - 238 Visitor Center Dr, LBL

Dec 1, 2022 thru Dec 31, 2022 - Various Times

This is staff favorite. Very broad in scope, the show begins with some brief history of how we have progressed in our understanding of the universe. In the past one hundred years we have grown exponentially and with the aid of the tech industry we are now able to observe aspects of the universe for the first time. Next, we enjoy a nice trip through the solar system - and beyond. We have lots of enthusiasm for the deep space concepts and many of our visitors and patrons agree. Deep space is infinitely interesting. With stunning visuals and a top-notch narration, it is easy to see why this show quickly became a favorite. Admission fees apply.

Firefall

Golden Pond Planetarium - 238 Visitor Center Dr, LBL

Dec 1, 2022 thru Dec 31, 2022 - Various Times

Some of this debris collides with the Earth daily and is harmless. Some of the other objects may also collide with us, but we surely hope not. But we know it has happened before as you will learn in the show. Dedicated nightly searches are carried out around the globe using the most sophisticated instruments and computer software to detect Near Earth Objects (NEOs). A collision with a large comet or asteroid has the potential to destroy an entire civilization and change the course of history. Just ask the dinosaurs. Admission fees apply.

Earth, Moon & Sun

Golden Pond Planetarium - 238 Visitor Center Dr, LBL

Dec 1, 2022 thru Dec 31, 2022 - Various Times

Morehead Planetarium and Science Center created Earth, Moon & Sun to help children explore the relationship between our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. Children are helped in their exploration by Coyote, a character adapted from Native American oral traditions. Native American stories woven throughout the show illustrate how we have long sought to understand our planet and the skies above us. In this show, Coyote proves to be an amusing guide because he has so many misconceptions about space. Coyote's confusion brings scientific facts to light and helps students think about how Earth, Moon, and Sun work together as a system. Students learn why the Sun rises and sets and the basics of fusion and solar energy. They examine the Moon's orbit, craters, phases, and eclipses. The show also describes past and future space travel to our Moon and beyond. Admission fees apply. For showtimes, download the full Planetarium schedule here.

Traveling With Light

Golden Pond Planetarium - 238 Visitor Center Dr, LBL

Dec 1, 2022 thru Dec 31, 2022 - Various Times

Traveling with Light presents different scenarios that reveal the complexity of light and its direct influence on our planet. The Sun is the closest star to Earth and generates the energy that provides the light and heat necessary for life. Nevertheless, the Sun is not the only source of natural light. Fire has accompanied the Earth since its inception and has played a very important role in the evolution of the human being, so much so that its discovery by primitive societies changed their way of life.

IBEX is the name of a small spacecraft orbiting the earth and gathering data as you read this. The name is an acronym which stands for Interstellar Boundary Explorer. The data being collected will help physicists and engineers produce a map of the heliosphere, the bubble that keeps our entire solar system safe from harmful radiation as the sun and its planets travel through the galaxy. Our sun orbits the center of our galaxy much like a planet orbits a star. The heliosphere is like a cocoon which is also the boundary of our solar system. If a spacecraft leaves the heliosphere, then it has left the solar system altogether! Admission fees apply. For a complete planetarium schedule, download this PDF.
