Friday Starry Nights at the Planetarium
October 13, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:45 pm
Beginning on May 12, the T.C. Hooper Planetarium will debut two new planetarium shows and new showtimes due to the high demand. At 6 p.m., join us for “One World, One Sky: Big Bird’s Adventure.” Join Big Bird and Elmo as they explore the night sky and take an imaginary trip from Sesame Street to the moon. Recommended for all ages. Then at 7:15 p.m., enjoy “Magic Tree House: Space Mission.” Peek into the tree house and follow Jack and Annie on an exciting adventure as they meet a helpful astronomer and an astronaut. Recommended for all ages. At 8:45 p.m., view “Eclipse: The Sun Revealed.” Are you ready for the incredible total solar eclipse happening in Greenville on Aug. 21? This brand new show will tell you everything you need to prepare for for this once-in-a-lifetime event. Each showtime includes the feature show, “Upstate’s Sky Tonight” presentation, and a Space Park 360 Virtual Rollercoaster. Daniel Observatory is also open (weather permitting) for viewing through the 23-inch refractor telescope, the eighth-largest in North America.
