Planet Passport Series
Join our planet passport series! Each month, come to the planetarium for a show focused on one planet or place in space. Participants will receive a planet passport, and for each show they attend, will earn a sticker for that destination. Collect three stickers and earn a prize! Those with five stickers will pick a second prize, and be invited to a planet party in the Dome! Those with eight stickers and more will earn more prizes, be invited to the planet party, and be invited to an exclusive telescope viewing of the planets and Moon. Bring your passport to each show to collect a complete set!
Shows will be on the first Saturday (10:15 AM) and second Wednesday (6 PM) of each month. This program is available for all ages.
Each show will be about 45 minutes in length.
Buy one passport per participant, and you can come to any show in the series. If you miss a month or two, don't worry! We will repeat the series next year, so you will have more chances to collect more planet stickers.
One passport includes: a seat in any of our 10 different monthly planet passport shows, a prize when you collect 3, 5, 8 and 10 stickers, and the ability to earn admission to the planet party and observing night with 5 or 8 stickers earned. Passports are $15 for members and $20 for non-members.
If you earned 5 stickers or more in our first Planet Passport cycle, you are invited to the Planet Party on August 11 at 6 PM. If you have earned 8 or more stickers, you are invited to the observing night, on September 22, from 7:30-8:30 PM. Our backup date in case of cloud cover is September 29.
If you missed shows, or started late in the first Planet Passport cycle, you are welcome to join the programs for your missing stickers in cycle 2. The dates are listed below. You do not need to buy a new passport if you are just filling in stickers you missed. If you are new to the program, you can buy your passport at the front desk, or at the link below.
