In this Planetarium show children will learn about night and day, space travel, the phases of the Moon and features of the lunar surface and the Sun, as they travel with Tycho the dog.

Children will be able to explore the idea of our place in space by taking a close-up look at the Sun, watching the effects of gravity, seeing the Earth from space and watching meteors shoot across the night sky.

All Planetarium shows conclude with a staff guided ‘What’s in the sky tonight’ presentation.
