Friends of the Planetarium October 2015 Weekend

Due to an equipment breakdown, two shows planned for this weekend had to be cancelled. Any advance sales will be automatically refunded. The cancelled shows are marked in the schedule above. We hope you can join us for Saturday night's movie and Sunday's lecture, which promises to be a rare and special treat.

The next special Friends of the Planetarium weekend will happen on October 16th – 18th, 2015. Our October theme is Rockets and Spaceflight!

Our Friday night showing of Undiscovered Worlds has been cancelled.

On Saturday, see the feature-length motion picture October Sky, suitable for all ages.

On Sunday we are very pleased to host renowned science speaker Dr. Michelle Thaller, from NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, who will deliver the Sunday Science Lecture “It's the Small Worlds, After All!” The showing of The Magic Treehouse®: Space Mission planned for Sunday afternoon is cancelled.

Members of the Friends have already received advance notice of these shows. If you would like to be equally fortunate, please consider supporting the Planetarium and science education in Northern Virginia by joining the Friends of the Planetarium.
