Then, meet at the Vanderbilt Museum for a 30-minute live lecture of the night sky using the planetarium theater’s amazing star projection system.

Visitors will then watch the fulldome film “We Are Guardians.”

Following the programs in the theater, and weather-permitting, will be an opportunity to look through one of the Vanderbilt Observatory telescopes and to create an earth-themed craft.  Sandwiches, snacks, and soft drinks will be available from the planetarium’s café for purchase.
