Month of May- FREE Virtual Planetarium Showing:
LIMITED TIME!!UNSEEN UNIVERSE
- GET TICKETS
Scobee Planetarium is releasing a special showing of "Unseen Universe" for FREE! This movie is aimed towards the general public (ages 6 & up).
This 25 minute video shows us what lies beyond the Earth. For millions of years, our view of the heavens has been limited by our eyes, allowing us to only see a narrow band of electromagnetic radiation we call visible light. For the first time ever, in the greatest breakthrough since the invention of the telescope, we now have the technology to capture the Universe over an amazing width of the spectrum and beyond. We can even interlink telescopes around the world to capture data on a global scale.
*Disclaimer: This is NOT a live event. The shows are available throughout the day. **
- Weekly Sky Tonight - Let's Fly into Space together!!! Join us on YOUTUBE as Scobee's very own Astronomer tells us exciting and interesting space facts our own night skies and beyond!
