6:00 PM “SECRET OF THE CARDBOARD ROCKET" (Children under age 4 not admitted.)
Prepare for blast-off! “Secret of the Cardboard Rocket” is our show designed for young children. Embark on a celestial adventure as two siblings spend a night touring the solar system inside a “cardboard spaceship” guided by their navigator – a talking astronomy book. Produced with state of the art animation, young astronauts will enjoy this imaginary journey to the sun and each of the planets. Even Pluto is included in our journey.
7:30 PM “THE SKY TONIGHT” (Children under age 6 not admitted.)
A Scobee Planetarium classic returns! “THE SKY TONIGHT” takes the audience on a “live” tour of the wonders of the San Antonio night sky. This program highlights the Moon, the evening and morning planets, plus we’ll identify several of the brightest stars and constellations visible in the current night sky. Special celestial events are also highlighted. The Sky Tonight is a "live" lecture and is back by popular request.
9:00 PM “BLACK HOLES” - (Children under age 6 not admitted.)
Our most complex show! Take a journey through one of the most mystifying, awe-inspiring phenomena in the universe: a black hole. Where do they come from? Where do they go? How do we find them? Is there a black hole in Earth's future? Using the latest in full-dome, animation visualization technology, explore with us the science and mystery of "Black Holes!" This program is narrated by actor John de Lancie, a.k.a. “Q” of Star Trek. “Black Holes” - not even your curiosity can escape!
