Hardin Planetarium Holiday Show

  • Location: Hardin Planetarium
  • Time: 2:00pm - 3:00pm

WKU's Hardin Planetarium is presenting Celebrations for a Long Winter’s Night, every Tuesday and Thursday night at 7 and Sunday afternoon at 2 through Jan. 7.

Celebrations For a Long Winter's Night is one of Hardin Planetarium's most popular presentations, exploring why mid-December is the time for so many warm and bright celebrations and what astronomy can tell us about the story of the Christmas Star.

The planetarium reopened to the public in August 2020, with safety as its primary concern. Masks are worn at all times within the building. Governor Beshear's current order limits capacity to 25, which provides for substantial distancing in the planetarium’s large space. Guest names and phone numbers are collected for contact tracing, and seating is assigned by planetarium volunteers. Shortly before the show, attendees are guided to their assigned seats within the star chamber’s dome. While waiting to be seated, guests are encouraged to explore the space exhibits of the Ring Hall, though all guests must move counter-clockwise through the circular space. 

As with all public shows at Hardin Planetarium, Celebrations for a Long Winter’s Night is offered at no cost, with no ticket required and no reservations accepted.  No shows are presented on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve. The planetarium is located at 1501 State St.

More information is available by calling (270) 745-4044 or visiting the planetarium website at https://www.wku.edu/hardinplanetarium/

Perseverance to Reach Mars will be presented Jan. 7-Feb. 18 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium. Hardin Planetarium’s free of charge public shows are offered every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

NASA’s Perseverance Rover will reach Mars on Feb. 18 to begin its search for signs of ancient microbial life, and characterizing environmental conditions that could affect future astronauts living and working on Mars. Perseverance will be only the fifth rover to attempt landing on Mars – when less than 50% of the missions ever sent to Mars by any space agency have been successful. The mission for this 1-ton, compact-car sized, nuclear-powered science laboratory on 6-wheels is to navigate around Jezero Crater’s ancient river delta, analyzing 3½ billion-year-old samples formed when Mars was still wet.

Perseverance to Reach Mars has a 35-minute running time, with time for questions at the end of the presentation. Suitable for all ages. No ticket required and no reservations accepted. The show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted.

Masks are to be worn at all times within the building. Our temporarily limited capacity provides for substantial distancing in Hardin Planetarium’s large spaces. Guest names and phone numbers will be collected for contact tracing, and seating is assigned by planetarium staff. Shortly before the show, attendees will be guided to their assigned seats within the domed star chamber.

  • Location: Hardin Planetarium
  • Time: 7:00pm - 8:00pm

Perseverance to Reach Mars will be presented Jan. 7-Feb. 18 at WKU’s Hardin Planetarium. Hardin Planetarium’s free of charge public shows are offered every Tuesday and Thursday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.

NASA’s Perseverance Rover will reach Mars on Feb. 18 to begin its search for signs of ancient microbial life, and characterizing environmental conditions that could affect future astronauts living and working on Mars. Perseverance will be only the fifth rover to attempt landing on Mars – when less than 50% of the missions ever sent to Mars by any space agency have been successful. The mission for this 1-ton, compact-car sized, nuclear-powered science laboratory on 6-wheels is to navigate around Jezero Crater’s ancient river delta, analyzing 3½ billion-year-old samples formed when Mars was still wet.

Perseverance to Reach Mars has a 35-minute running time, with time for questions at the end of the presentation. Suitable for all ages. No ticket required and no reservations accepted. The show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted.

Masks are to be worn at all times within the building. Our temporarily limited capacity provides for substantial distancing in Hardin Planetarium’s large spaces. Guest names and phone numbers will be collected for contact tracing, and seating is assigned by planetarium staff. Shortly before the show, attendees will be guided to their assigned seats within the domed star chamber. While waiting to be seated, guests are encouraged to explore the exhibits, moving counter-clockwise through the Ring Hall. The planetarium is located at 1501 State St.
