Our planetarium spaceship blasts off on a tour that takes us to each member of the solar system. All nine planets, some of their moons and minor members of the Solar System reveal fascinating spacescapes. Their hostile environments and similarities to Earth are explained by mission specialists onboard. A live tour of the winter constellations also includes stars of the Maine sky. A space tour of the planets on the planetarium ship, Draco. (Recommended for Ages 7 – 12)

Planetarium shows are held the third Friday and Saturday of every month at various times. For more information, visit
