Virtual Planetarium Show for Kids: Festival(s) of Lights


Saturday, November 14

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!

Today is widely observed as the Festival of Lights across Southeast Asia, from parts of Indonesia, across India, and up into the Himalayas, and by people all over the world whose families come from that region. It’s not a coincidence that this time of year is a time when humans like to light up the world around them . . . and it has to do with the 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.
