The Christa McAuliffe Planetarium will present the program, "“Wonders of the Universe” at 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 14.


Produced by Evans & Sutherland Digital Theater, Wonders of the Universe allows audiences to peer deep into space through the eyes of the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and travel back billions of years in time to witness the birth of the universe. On this breathtaking excursion the audience will witness the formation of galaxies and explore some of the most wondrous nebulae and astronomical structures yet discovered. As the trip continues, you’ll fly deep into our own Milky Way galaxy and return home to Earth on a spectacular tour through the solar system.

In addition to the program, there will be a tour of the constellations and planets that can be seen in the early spring sky.


Admission charges are: $5 for age 18+ and $2 for students with a current student ID (including students from CSU-P and PCC with a student ID). The program narration is intended for grades four and above.  Seating is limited, reservations are encouraged.

The Christa McAuliffe Planetarium is located at Centennial High School, 2525 Mountview Dr. The main entrance to the facility is on the west side of the building.
