    Big Astronomy Livestream | YOUTUBE 360

    Every Thursday at 2:30

    Tune in for a special 360 degree livestream of our newest Dome show, "Big Astronomy." Take a vacation to exotic telescopes in remote reaches of Chile, from the comfort of your own home! After the show, Planetarium Director Renae Kerrigan will answer your space questions.

    It takes many people with diverse backgrounds, talents, and skills to run a world-class observatory. Meet a few of these people as they share the wonder of the sky and the excitement of discovery. Explore the world-class observatories nestled in northern Chile’s mountains and learn why Chile, with its beautiful mountain ranges and clear, cloudless skies, creates an ideal environment for studying the cosmos.

    Continue discovering! Participate in live conversations with observatory staff, explore exclusive behind-the-scenes footage, educational activities, and ongoing science experiments all at www.BigAstronomy.org

    You can view a 360 livestream on your mobile device, a desktop computer, or a VR headset.

    Livestream at 2:30 pm (central) on Thursday, January 21st

    Join us for virtual Art Club! Art Club is a monthly meeting of people who love art. Each month we hear about a different artist or topic. We encourage artists to come talk about their own work, a style they love, or another artist they admire. Enjoy a casual discussion with PowerPoint slides. Participants are encouraged, though not required, to ask questions and discuss pieces of art presented.

    This month, artist Chelsie Tamms will be presenting their own work while you enjoy coffee and treats at your home.
