DAILY SHOWS

One World, One Sky (with Big Bird & Elmo)
A perfect introduction to the night sky for young children. Big Bird and Elmo watch a sunset, find the Big Dipper and the North Star, and take an imaginary trip to the Moon. (recorded show, 30 min)

Legends of the Night Sky: Orion  
Orion is the most famous and recognizable constellation in the winter sky. Learn how to find his belt of stars and his two dogs in tonight's sky, and then watch his ancient story unfold on the dome with laser light animations. (laser light animation, 30 min)

Stars Over Peoria
Learn about the stars and planets that you can see overhead this season in this interactive program.

Uniview - Tour the Solar System!
Our Uniview software allows us to turn the planetarium into a pretend-spaceship. After a short introduction, you can choose our destination from among the many planets and moons of the Solar System. Our astronomy experts will give you an interactive tour of the Solar System! (live show, 30 min)

Black Holes 
Few mysteries in the universe have the power and awe of a black hole. Only now are we on the verge of understanding their true nature. This immersive show incorporates some of the most intense three-dimensional visual effects ever created on the subject.  (recorded show, 40 min)

Relax under the Stars
Begin by finding the planets, bright stars, and recognizable constellations currently gracing our evening skies. Then relax for the remaining hour while stars and beautiful images of the cosmos pass overhead on the dome, accompanied by serene space music. (free show, 1 hr)
