Einstein’s Gravity Playlist - New Original Show!
Now – May 26
     Daily 1pm
Come and see the world premiere of the first original production in the digital Taylor Planetarium. This show, produced at Montana State University, will explore Einstein’s famous theory that predicted the existence of gravitational waves through their discovery in February 2016. Join Lucia, a Ph.D. student in physics, on an exploration of how gravitational waves are formed, how they move through the universe, and how scientists like her work to hear them.

The Dinosaur Prophecy - New Show!
Now – May 26
     Monday – Friday 11am & 3pm

Long before dinosaurs’ massive extinction 65 million years ago, many individual species simply disappeared. Visit dinosaur graveyards, study their bones, and reconstruct how these creatures lived and died to solve four famous cold cases from the age of the dinosaurs.

Beyond the Stars - New Show!
Now – May 21
     Saturday 11am & 3pm | Sunday 3pm 
As we enter into spring, join us for a fresh twist on our night sky updates. As Charles Messier searched for comets, he discovered and cataloged many “fuzzy” objects he saw through his telescope. Today we use this list as a reference to search for deep sky objects with our backyard telescopes. This spring, we’ll begin with galaxies from this list, and go on a marathon journey into your nighttime sky.

Now – May 26
     Saturday 10am
Follow along with Big Bird, Elmo, and their friend from China, Hu Hu Zhu, as they take you on a journey of discovery to learn about the Big Dipper, North Star, Sun, and Moon. This 25-minute show is excellent for our younger viewers as it aims to nurture a child’s natural sense of wonder about the night sky.
