Planetarium Show
The Suits-Bueche Planetarium at miSci is an official NASA Space Place and is powered by the GOTO Chronos Star Machine, a state-of-art teaching tool that allows students to see 8,500 stars, 26 deep sky objects, and 24 constellations. All shows are hosted by an educator and include a tour of the seasonal night sky. NEW! miSci recently installed a new high definition, full-dome, computerized projector in the Suits-Bueche Planetarium. Using a series of mirrors to project on the full 30-foot dome, the new projector provides a much more immersive experience in the new shows we’ve added to our planetarium show offerings. Suggested grade levels are indicated, but all programs can be modified to accommodate different ages – from preschool to adult. 45 minutes (unless otherwise noted), 60 people maximum, including chaperones per program. Please have scouts use the restroom before the planetarium show begins. If you choose to exit the planetarium during the show doors will lock behind you.Scout Leaders, make miSci the next stop for your troop!
