The ISU Planetarium Presents: Out There- The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds
The Illinois State University Planetarium is also pleased to offer Out There – The Quest for Extrasolar Worlds. Show times are Wednesdays at 2 PM, Fridays at 7:30 PM, and Saturdays at 2 PM; through July 28. There is no showing on July 14.
Out There sweeps you from this world to entirely new and unimagined vistas. The program begins by exploring the primitive science fiction of early civilizations. Then it sweeps you into the future to experience space missions that visit the cratered surfaces and deep oceans of distant moons in our Solar System. Finally, we probe the deepest mysteries of the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond.
After each program, we explore highlights found in the current evening sky; including the bright stars, constellations, and planets visible from Central Illinois.
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.
The ISU Planetarium is located under the white domed roof at the eastern end of Felmley Hall of Science Annex. Felmley Hall is located on the northeast corner of the ISU campus at the intersection of College Avenue and School Street.
Free parking for the weekend programs is available a short distance from the ISU Planetarium in University parking lot F-67, located on the east side of School Street.
