This fulldome show explores a timeless question: Do other Earth-like planets exist in the universe? Travel to distant stars and explore an exquisite and diverse array of alien worlds orbiting other stars: exoplanets. As the number of exoplanets soars into the thousands, space-and ground-based telescopes, such as NASA's Kepler telescope, are revolutionizing our view of the universe, bringing humankind one step closer to finding habitable worlds orbiting other stars.

Suitable for family audiences. Running time: 35 minutes

About the parking...

There is still free parking around the planetarium, but most of the spaces on the north and east side of the building have been fenced off now and will not be available until after construction is finished. Limited parking is available in the lot for the aquatic center, on the side nearest the planetarium. Visitors may also parking the “deck” to the north of the building, and in the Buck Co. lot on the opposite side of Quincy. Street parking is also available along Quincy. This is metered until 8 pm. Please allow a little extra time to find parking for shows at the planetarium, and thanks for your patience!

For more information, see Exoplanets: Special Weekend October 19-21

Doors open: 7 p.m. Show begins: 7:30 p.m.

Our capacity is 58 seats. We set aside 20 seats to accommodate those who arrive without a reservation, so if the show is sold out you can still try to attend by arriving close to 7 p.m. However, although we will do whatever we can to seat all comers, there is no guarantee of admission without a reservation.
