The Hitchhiker’s Guide the Universe is and incredible visual tour of the size and scale of our cosmos! Join planetarium manager  Shawn Laatsch as he host the evening presentation and “flies” participants out into space on a unique and engaging tour through the Universe.  Audience members  will travel to our local planets and their moon systems, zip through the rings of Saturn, and explore the asteroids.  We will visit other star systems, explore nebulae and go far beyond to star clusters and other areas of our Milky Way galaxy.   Traveling beyond the Milky Way, the journey will continue into inter galactic space exploring our local group of galaxies, the Virgo cluster of galaxies, and to the farthest edge of the Universe.  Feel as if you are “jumping off the Earth” as you voyage through time and space!

 

You can purchase tickets in advance online or over the phone.
