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 – Mars 1001 – Purchase Tickets

Someday soon, the first humans will leave for Mars. They may be someone you know. Like the astronauts of the Space Age, they’ll be blasting off to the unknown. MARS 1001 is the story of one possible mission that carries a multi-national crew to the Red Planet. This presentation is a captivating exploration of the kind of mission we’ll soon see blast off to Mars.

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.
