Explore the amazing movements of the heavens!

 

Why does the Sun rise and set? How does the Moon move through the sky? Where are the other planets amidst the stars? Join the Hardin Planetarium staff for an exciting adventure through the sky above us, in which we will answer all these questions and more! With our new digital imaging technology, we will employ state-of-the-art simulations to demonstrate the incredible truths behind the motions in the sky.
