One of the most popular shows at the David M. Brown Planetarium, Season of Light is anannual holiday program about the coldest and darkest of seasons — a time which holds some of the warmest and brightest celebrations of the year. This multicultural presentation traces the history and development of many of the world's most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season. Audiences learn about a few Northern hemisphere winter constellations, find out why we have seasons, observe the Sun's path across the sky throughout the year, and see the Earth's tilt and orbit around the Sun. Target audience is all ages. Loch Ness Productions.

Running Time: 35 minutes.

Admission for this Arlington Public Schools (APS) program is $2 for Children (up to age 12), $2 for Seniors (60+), and $3 for teens and adults.

Ticketing for Season of Light will be handled at the door, and will be on a cash only basis. There are no reserved seats for this show.

Doors open: 1 p.m. Show begins: 1:30 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 1 p.m. However, although we will do whatever we can to seat all comers, there is no guarantee of admission without a reservation.
