Seven planets and the moon arching over text: Planet Party

Planet Party 2022!

Join us for this astronomical event

For two days only, get ready for one Moon, seven planets, and a dwarf planet!

Summer is off to a great start as all seven planets join the Moon in the morning sky, along with everyone’s favorite dwarf planet Pluto. The Planetarium team will be setting up telescopes (weather permitting) outside in the Learning Landscape to view this celestial lineup, so come by and take a look at our closest neighbors (seeing Pluto not guaranteed).

Registration is not required but is encouraged to receive communications regarding this event. Register for one (or both!) dates:
