Skies of Spring
Saturdays at 6:00 pm

As temperatures warm and Earth continues its 
journey around the Sun, we are able to view 
different constellations and planets. Join us for 
this live tour of Buffalo's spring sky and learn 
where/when to view the objects in our 
spring skies.  

Total run time: Approximately 50 minutes

Best for: Ages 7 and older and adults. Children 4 
and younger are not allowed in the planetarium 
for most public shows due to safety concerns.

Solar Superstorms
Saturdays at 7:30 pm

A fury is building on the surface of the Sun – high-velocity 
jets, a fiery tsunami wave that reaches 100,000 kilometers 
high, rising loops of electrified gas. What’s driving these 
strange phenomena? How will they affect planet Earth? 

Find the answers as we venture into the seething interior 
of our star, the Sun!

Solar Superstorms is a major new production that takes 
viewers into the tangle of magnetic fields and superhot 
plasma that vent the Sun’s rage in dramatic flares, violent 
solar tornadoes, and the largest eruptions in the solar 
system: Coronal Mass Ejections.

The show features one of the most intensive efforts ever 
made to visualize the inner workings of the sun, including 
a series of groundbreaking scientific visualizations. 

Watch the trailer here.

Includes an Astronomy Update presentation about current events in astronomy exploration and the night sky. 

Total run time: Approximately 45 minutes

Best for: Ages 12 and above.
