Screening of Cosmos episode Harmony of the Worlds followed by an evening debate between famed astronomers Tycho Brahe & Johannes Kepler

Our understanding of the cosmos rests on the “shoulders of giants”…the great astronomers of the past. See Carl Sagan’s history and evolution of modern astronomy from myths and horoscopes to the laws of astrophysics. You can also meet the “stars” of the film, the famous astronomers Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler, as they describe their world and entertain your questions.

Target Audience: 10 through adult.

Running Time: 2 hours (all activities).

Doors open: 6 p.m. Show begins: 6:30 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 6 p.m. However, although we will do whatever we can to seat all comers, there is no guarantee of admission without a reservation.
