8 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.
9 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.
10 pm – Pink Floyd: The Wall – Purchase Tickets
Pink Floyd’s The Wall, a cult favorite, is considered one of the best classic-rock albums of all time. Released in 1979, it is regarded as a continual story rather than a collection of individual songs, according to Audio Visual Imagineering (AVI), which created the show. The Wall is the tale of a rock star named Pink and his downward spiral into madness. This gripping and spellbinding musical journey is beautiful, haunting, powerful and thought-provoking. This timeless classic, one of Pink Floyd’s best, became the group’s second bestseller behind Dark Side of the Moon.Purchase Tickets
