The Little Star That Could is a story about Little Star, an average yellow star in search for planets of his own to protect and warm.

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 – Haunted Skies – Purchase Tickets
Come along on a journey of exploration into the origins of this magnificent and often misunderstood holiday. We travel to the ancient past to uncover the origins of Halloween and give some insight as to why we still celebrate this autumn tradition today. Spine-tingling and certainly not for the faint of heart, this program echoes the spirit of the holiday in an enjoyable, intelligent and often “frightening” planetarium production. Find out for yourself what lurks in the starry skies above. Narrated by Ray Adell.
