Starry Night Express
Enjoy this LIVE show for stargazers of all ages. Practice finding constellations, planets, the moon, meteor showers and the Milky Way band -- everything you might see on the next starry night. Then imagine leaving Houston behind for a visit to our George Observatory and on to the darkest skies on Earth. The live action adventure then zooms out to the different planets you can see, past Pluto, and on to the stars of the nearby Pleiades star cluster and into the birth clouds of the Orion Nebula. Watch the Milky Way transform into a barred spiral galaxy within a sea of galaxies. This is a guided tour led by your personal astronomer, beginning with the objects you can see tonight in your own backyard. Note: Please arrive at least 15 minutes before showtime. Late entry is not allowed. (Fee: $8-9 nonmembers) Daily at 1:30pm through 11/16/18; check schedule for additional times or schedule changes. No shows on 6/9; 6/12 or 7/24/18.
