8 pm – Long Island Skies – Purchase Tickets

This live presentation for the whole family, developed by the Vanderbilt Planetarium staff, uses the star projector to its fullest capabilities. The program introduces the brilliant night sky that can be seen on Long Island from everyone’s backyard, including seasonal constellations, stars and deep-sky objects. Following the program, and weather permitting, the planetarium staff will open the Observatory. To enhance what they have just learned, visitors can look through the 16-inch Cassegrain telescope to observe the objects discussed during the show.

9 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.

10 pm – Laser Stranger Things – Purchase Tickets

Fans can’t get enough of the retro vibe of the hit series Stranger Things. Take a trip to the upside-down in the safety of the dome. Experience the ’80s tunes and soundscapes from the show reinterpreted in vibrant laser light. Songs include: “Sunglasses at Night” by Corey Hart, “Every Breath You Take” by The Police, “Girls on Film” by Duran Duran “Atmosphere” by Joy Division, “Twist of Fate” by Olivia Newton John, “Heros” by Peter Gabriel, “Runaway” by Bon Jovi, “Talking in Your Sleep” by The Romantics, “Whip it” by Devo, “Time After Time” by Cyndi Lauper and “Hazy Shade of Winter” by The Bangles
