What's Next...
Total Lunar Eclipse Event....

Sunday January 20th 6:00 pm - 10:30 pm

We invite you all to come and enjoy this event with us.
The Total Eclipse of the Moon will be the highlight of the evening as the peak of totality will happen shortly after 9:00 pm!

A perfect time for us to enjoy the mid January night sky as we will be debuting some NEW and exciting additions to our show.
Michael Roemelen has introduced his interactive Astro Imagine Theater with his latest astrophoto touchscreen display. It's fantastic to travel from deep space object to object at the touch of your finger and learn as you go.
Leonard Holmberg has introduced his latest invention with his Cosmic Holographic presentation that will blow your mind. See the International Space Station floating in the sky! The Sun and Moon revolving in space in front of you! Simply amazing new additions to our show.
As usual, our 3D Deep Space Adventure and VR Virtual Deep Space Explorer shows are happening as well.

The show begins at 6:00 pm with time to get relaxed as the Full Wolf Moon rises in the East and begins the pre-umbra phase that will last until the peak of totality happens at 9:12 pm. Meanwhile, we will be projecting live Lunar images on the big screen along with some of our informative film clips that we share with everyone.
Please bring your comfy things, warm clothes, libation.  
The fire barrel will be blazing to take away the chill and some of our art from 
The Black Hole Collection Of Fine Art will be hung for your enjoyment. Newly acquired pieces are to be featured and we are very happy to announce our plans for the rest of our 2019 season. 
Come get some Starlight with us! We share Astronomy better than Anyone else!  Leonard Holmberg, Tom Haworth, Michael Roemelen, More!
$5.00 at the door please

Let's explore our wonderful Universe together!
