Saturday Planetarium Shows
The Chia-yu Li Planetarium is open to the public on the second Saturday of each month.
Show times are at 11am,12pm, and 1pm. The planetarium features short film documentaries that explore topics across space and science in visually stunning ways.
Once a month during Starry Night we open the The Kitty and Max Joyner Observatory to the public.
Each Starry Night starts off with a tour of the night sky in the planetarium to find the planets, constellations, and deep space objects available that evening. Then, we head to the observatory to see the wonders of the night sky with our own eyes.
