Several shows have opened recently or are scheduled to open this summer. Secret Lives of Stars, which started a few weeks ago in the Hansen Dome Theatre, explores the characteristics of stars. World of Light, a German laser light show will open in the evenings in July, and Dragons 3D: Real Myths and Unreal Creatures will open in the ATK IMAX®Theatre on Friday, June 28. Dragons 3D traces the legend of dragons across cultures and continents, exploring their connections to history, geography, paleontology, literature, art, national identity and more.
In addition to the shows opening this summer, Clark Planetarium will be opening several new shows during the rest of 2013. The shows in the Hansen Dome Theatre will include Clark Planetarium’s latest production Our Exploding Universe in October along with the return of the holiday music laser light show Let it Snow in November. Rocky Mountain Express, a documentary featuring stunning scenery and highlights the adventure of building a nearly impossible transcontinental railway through the Canadian Rockies, will open in the ATK IMAX® Theatre this fall.
On your visit to Clark Planetarium remember to enjoy the 10,000 square feet of exhibits. Our latest exhibits include Sea of Clouds, a Tornado exhibit and the Plasma Ball. Science on a Sphere is always updated with new information and graphics from NOAA.
Clark Planetarium will be hosting a star party along with a presentation about the Aurora this summer just for Clark Planetarium members. The Aurora presentation will be by Duke Johnson, Clark Planetarium Education Manager, who traveled to Yellowknife in the Northwest Territory of Canada this winter and captured amazing photos of the Aurora in the night sky.
