In this live and interactive show, planetarium educators take you on a tour of the sky as seen from our area. Every show is unique, with topics ranging from visible planets, bright stars, and the Milky Way, to periodic comets, seasonal constellations, black holes, alien planets, upcoming rocket launches, meteor showers, satellite spotting, and more!

During this holiday-themed edition of The Sky Tonight, learn about the astronomical reasons for the solstice; the legend of the Star of Bethlehem, and whether or not the story may refer to actual astronomical events; seasonal symbols, like wreaths, and their meaning; and the sky at midnight on New Year’s Eve.
