Noble Planetarium

Panetarium Admission Info

Calendar of Showtimes

The Planetarium’s live, interactive program distinguishes the Noble from all others. Thanks to two new, all-digital star balls within a 40-foot dome cover, you can visit the Milky Way galaxy and travel up to 13.7 billion light years away – and ask questions of Planetarium staff along the way. In addition to viewing the constellations and stars visible in the sky, you’ll also learn about current astronomical events of the day.

  • Moon Mythbusting
    Come learn more about how the Mythbuster team used the scientific method to bust the Moon myths.

  • The Christmas Star - opening December 22, 2014
    A classic revived, this show delves into the possible explanations behind the heralded astronomical event that occurred in biblical times, widely known as the “Star of Bethlehem”.

    Join Big Bird, Elmo and their friend, Hu Hu Zhu as they introduce children to the night sky and very basic astronomy. Recommended for very young audiences (ages 2 to 7), and the very young at heart!

    In case you haven’t heard, the Moon is trending again… and in a big way. Like in the glory days of the 1960s and 1970s, our big white space neighbor is enjoying the attention of lunar explorers. Only this time, they’re going back to the moon for good.

    Fly from the oceans of Earth, to the towering peaks of Mars, and out to the unexplored landscapes of the Milky Way galaxy. Could there be life out there and, if there is, could we ever find it?
