DAILY SHOWS

From Earth to the Universe 
This immersive fulldome show takes you on a journey through time and space, from the earliest beginnings of science to the farthest reaches of the known universe. While marveling at our current understanding of the cosmos, you’ll also revel in glorious images of planets, stars, nebulae, and galaxies provided by modern telescopes and robotic spacecraft.  (recorded show, 30 min)

Perfect Little Planet 
Discover our solar system through a new set of eyes: a family from another star system seeking the perfect vacation spot. Fly over the surface of Pluto, our best known dwarf planet. Dive down the ice cliffs of Miranda. Sail through the rings of Saturn. Feel the lightning storms at Jupiter. Walk on the surface of Mars. Which destination would you choose? (recorded show, 30 min)

Stars Over Peoria
Learn about the stars and planets that you can see overhead this season in this interactive program. Hop through constellations, learn cool star names, and discover where the moon and planets will be in the current sky. Zoom in and take a closer look at the planets visible in the night sky! (live show, 30 min)

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)

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)
