Undiscovered Worlds: The Search Beyond Our Sun
Saturdays at 6:00 pm
      
Our solar system is not alone in the universe. Thousands
of exoplanets — planets that have been discvered orbiting
stars beyond the Sun — has caused us to redefine our
understanding of planets and solar systems.

With new achievements like the Kepler Telescope and
rapidly improving technology, the discovery of exoplanets
puts us one step closer to the possibility of finding an
Earth-like world. How will this change how we view our
place in the universe?

View the trailer for this immersive experience here.

This program also includes a 15-minute Sky Update.

Total run time is approximately 50 minutes.
Recommended for ages 7 and above.


Skies of the Harvest
Saturdays at 7:30 pm
       
As leaves change color and fall to the ground, darkness
descends earlier every night and reveals the familiar
constellations of October. Learn about their mythology and
where to find them in the Buffalo night sky. Also learn about
where to spot several planets and other celestial objects.

This is a totally live presentation with a run time of
approximately 50 minutes.

Recommended for ages 7 and above.
