During the weekend of November 13, the Friends of the Planetarium will be presenting its Second Annual Tribute to Carl Sagan. Make your reservations now, right from this website, by following the links in the schedule box on this page. If you would like advance notices of programs, and the ability to make reservations before they are made available on this website, please consider joining the Friends of the Planetarium.

Our Carl Sagan weekend will feature two classic episodes of Cosmos: The Edge of Forever and Encyclopedia Galactica. The first of these explores cosmology, the large-scale structure of the universe, and General Relativity. The second concerns the search for intelligent life beyond the Earth and the probability of advanced civilizations existing elsewhere in the universe. Admission to these COSMOS shows will be free of charge, but reservations are recommended.
