The ISU Planetarium Presents: Sunstruck!
The Illinois State University Planetarium is pleased to offer the full-dome show Sunstruck!, running from May 24 through July 21. Show times are Wednesdays at 2 PM and Fridays at 7:30 PM.
Travel back in time to experience the birth of our Sun and solar system. Discover how the Sun came to support life, how it threatens life as we know it, and how its energy will one day fade away. Experience our unique star, the Sun, in Sunstruck!
We will also preview the upcoming total solar eclipse, visible across the United States on August 21. This is the first total solar eclipse to be seen from the US in 40 years. Planetarium staff will discuss the solar eclipse, exploring what the eclipse will look like from Central Illinois and how to view the eclipse safely.
Admission to the ISU Planetarium is $4 for adults, $3 for children ages 5-12 and seniors, and $2.00 for children ages 3-4. Tickets may be purchased in the Planetarium Gift Shop, next to the Planetarium, beginning 20 minutes before each show.
