September 8 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

12 pm – One World, One Sky – Purchase Tickets

Elmo and Big Bird live in the United States and Hu Hu Zhu lives far away in China, but they discovered that they see the same stars at night.

1 pm – Dynamic Earth – Purchase Tickets

Explore the inner workings of Earth’s climate system with visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations. This exciting program follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes. We explore the relationship between Earth and the Sun, life and the carbon cycle, Earth’s climate control system, and how human activities are changing our planet. Come learn how dynamic planet Earth really is! Narrated by Liam Neeson.

2 pm – Night Sky, Live! – Purchase Tickets

This live-lecture presentation by an astronomy educator uses the Reichert Planetarium’s Starball to show the audience what the Long Island night sky above them will look like on the very day they visit. This “traditional” planetarium program highlights seasonal constellations, stars and year-round celestial events.

3 pm – Stars: Powerhouses of the Universe – Purchase Tickets

Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of stars. Content includes stellar evolution, space exploration, the electromagnetic spectrum, and the history of astronomy. Narrated by Mark Hamill.

4 pm – Incoming! – Purchase Tickets

Asteroids and comets have collided with our planet throughout its history, changing the course of life on Earth and shaping the world we know today. Incoming! also gives audiences a closer look at the scientific advances that may allow us to find and track cosmic threats before they reach Earth. The show concludes with glowing nighttime views of Chile’s Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which, once completed, will survey the entire sky every few days, observing and detecting faint moving objects, including asteroids and other Near-Earth Objects.
