Extreme Planet at the W.A. Gayle Planetarium

Extreme Planet
Showing Sundays @ 2 pm and Monday - Thursday @ 4 pm.

Just over a decade ago there were no known planets orbiting sunlike stars outside our own solar system.
Since 1995, however, fast-paced developments in detection techniques have revealed hundreds of extrasolar planets--with the pace of discovery increasing all the time. Though it will be years before we have direct images of the surfaces of these worlds, this show gives us an idea of what they might look like - up close and personal!
In this original production we'll explore the idea of what "Earth-like" even means, and take an immersive journey to several worlds that may stretch the imagination, but aren't science fiction anymore.

Doors open 30 minutes before show time. No admittance into building once a show has begun. Shows are about an hour long.  Shows are subject to change.

General Admission: $6.50 per person for ages 5 and above.
