New Planetarium Show Now Showing!

February 28th, 2018 by

Bays Mountain Planetarium is now showing “A Part of the Sky Called Orion!”

“A Part of the Sky Called Orion” – Our latest alternate presentation shown at 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays of March and April, 2018.

The program looks at how three different ancient cultures looked at the same part of the sky we know as the constellation Orion. We focus on the Greek, Egyptian, and Inupiaq cultures along with their different star stories and images using the night sky. It is thoroughly enjoyed by children and adults and is a great program to explore the heavens. The program is followed by a tour of the current night sky using our exceptional Carl Zeiss ZKP-4 star projector.

The show was produced in-house by Bays Mountain Productions and designed to look at the big ideas that have guided human understanding of the cosmos and its patterns in the sky.
