Outdoor Astro Show: Rainbows, Exoplanets, and Aliens!


Sundays, 12:30–1pm, 2–2:30pm, and 3:30–4pm


HRM Courtyard


Most things in space are so far away that visiting them in person isn’t currently possible, but the light they give off can tell us (almost) everything we need to know. We can uncover exoplanets, find out what things are made of, and, just maybe… find aliens!

Join us in the Museum Courtyard as we demonstrate how light is used to investigate these questions. We’ll connect rainbows and barcodes, noise makers and neutron stars. Can you identify the mystery materials?

Please note, in the event of rain, snow, or extreme cold, outdoor programs will be cancelled. Check here for updates.
