Summer 2015: A Tale of Many Moons
Starting this June, let us fly you to the Moon – and maybe two or three others. The moons of the Solar System are richly diverse: as fantastic and far-flung as the planets they circle. We’ll take you on a journey to some of the most mysterious, beautiful, and awe-inspiring moons our robotic spacecraft have yet revealed. With an expert guide and cutting-edge astronomical visuals, the Cosmos 360 series reveals the workings of the Universe from new perspectives. A new live presentation debuts in our digital-dome planetarium every three months.       



Fall 2015: Year of the Dwarf Planet
Debuts October 2nd

Pluto, everyone’s favorite underdog among the planets, has long been an icon of dark mystery and murky expectation. Until now. In 2015, NASA made first contact with not only Pluto, but also Ceres, two of our solar system’s dwarf planets. Join us on an adventure of a lifetime as we follow the New Horizons and Dawn missions, which have revealed to us that no matter what call them, these small and beautiful objects are small worlds, after all….
