Our Current Show

The Summer Constellation Show:


"Night SkyStories Over a Summer Campfire"

 Stars around a campfireSource:


Summer, more than any other season of the year, is a time for star-gazing.  Whether you are lucky enough to observe from a rural setting or find yourself looking skyward from a brightly lit town, this show is designed to help you become more familiar with the star patterns visible in the summer evenings. Share with us the glory of the celestial sphere as we look for ways to help identify them and remember the patterns they make.
