Virtual Planetarium Show for Kids: Daylight Savings Time


Saturday, November 7

11:30am Where

Zoom and FB Live

Admission Registration required

Do your kids love the Planetarium? We do, too—and since we can’t get together under the dome yet, we will bring the Planetarium to you!

All of a sudden there’s more morning! And less evening! But not really. This week we started Daylight Savings time again, which can be strange because all of a sudden it’s harder to catch sunrise, but easier to watch sunset. What’s the story behind this weird tradition? And how can you take advantage of earlier sunsets to see more of the night sky?

We’ll be using a planetarium simulator to view the night sky. Just like programs in the Planetarium, we’ll be able to take questions—this time through chat and comments. Recommended for ages 6–10. Please only register once per household.
