THE SCOBEE EDUCATION CENTER & PLANETARIUM

Public shows at the Scobee Education Center Planetarium are presented only on Friday evenings when parking for the general public is available on campus. NOTICE: SAC’s new address is now listed as 1819 N. Main Ave. However, our building is approximately 1 block east of the intersection of San Pedro Avenue and West Park Street. The phone number is 210-486-0100. Parking is free in Lot 23 in non-reserved spaces. The planetarium theater will be closed on Good Friday and during Spring Break.
Friday at 6:30pm – “PERFECT LITTLE PLANET” – This is our family show. All ages may attend. A family from another star system is embarking on the ultimate space vacation looking for the perfect spot to rest and relax. Join them and see the solar system from a distinctly different point of view. Show duration: 40 minutes. Tickets go on sale at 6:00PM.
Friday at 7:30 PM – “THE SKY TONIGHT” – Children must be 6 and above to attend. This program takes the audience on a “live” tour of the wonders of the San Antonio sky. The show highlights the Moon, the evening and morning planets, plus we’ll identify several of the brightest stars and constellations visible in the current sky. The Sky Tonight is a "live" lecture. Show duration: 45-50 minutes. Tickets go on sale at 7:00pm.
Friday at 9:00 PM – DOUBLE FEATURE, “DYNAMIC EARTH” AND “SEVEN WONDERS”
“DYNAMIC EARTH” – Children must be 6 and above to attend. Explore the inner workings of Earth's climate system. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.
"SEVEN WONDERS” – Children must be 6 and above to attend. Turn back the pages of time and witness the ancient wonders of the world as they appeared thousands of years ago. Explore the Great Pyramids, stand in the shadow of the towering Colossus and experience the rest of the world’s Seven Wonders. Show duration for double feature: 1 hour. Tickets go on sale at 8:30pm.
Ticket sales begin 30 minutes prior to show time at the Ticket Office. Capacity is exactly 101 seats. Come early. Shows start promptly and late admission is not permitted. Tickets and seating are "first come-first served." No reservations taken.
