Blending Christmas mystery with cosmic discovery, this show is perfect for families and sky-gazers aged 9 and older! This pop-up planetarium show is an immersive film on a 360-degree screen.
Step into a world of wonder as the planetarium opens to unveil the stunning night sky. Witness a breathtaking sunset, and as the sky darkens, let your eyes feast on more than 1,300 twinkling stars, the ribbon-like Milky Way, and the fleeting magic of shooting stars.
Next, dive into the newly-released 22-minute immersive film, "The Holy Star." Was the Star of Bethlehem a miracle, a myth, or something more?
Discover the awe-inspiring possibilities as we journey through time exploring comets, novae, supernovae, and more. The film wraps you in 360-degree visuals of ancient scenes and modern-day simulations.
We cap off this intriguing experience with a short Q&A session. Do you have questions about the Christmas Star or other cosmic wonders? Ask away! The planetarium dome will be filled with spellbinding visuals that make the answers come alive.
Learn, marvel, and celebrate the holiday season in a whole new light and join your host under the stars!
