Pittcon Planetarium

No rocket necessary for this space exploration! This 14-feet tall, full-dome experience will take you to the far reaches of the galaxy without ever leaving the expo floor. Two different planetarium shows to explore; Starhopping and Our Solar System.

Tuesday & Thursday Show
Starhopping – Finding Your Way in the Night Sky

Starhopping is the practice of using readily locatable planets or constellations as reference points for finding other features of interest in the night sky. Our planetarium program allows participants to observe the sky, planets, various constellations and individual stars from any point on the surface of the earth, at any year or time of day and at any rate of elapsing time. We will use these capabilities to explore the night sky from different perspectives within the northern hemisphere and show how relatively obtuse astronomy concepts can be made tangible by the innovative use of the planetarium software.

Wednesday Show
Our Solar System – What You May Not Know

This program focuses on the Sun and planets of our solar system, both individually and in concert. We will look at our solar system from different perspectives in space to better appreciate the orbits and motions of our planets. We will also explore the Sun and each of the planets to discuss their similarities, differences, mysteries, recent discoveries and special features or behaviors that make each of these bodies unique.
    Tickets only $5. To reserve your spot, you’ll need to RSVP through the registration portal.
