The Christa McAuliffe Planetarium will present the program, "Cosmic Safari" at 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18.


Produced by Evans & Sutherland Digital Theater and narrated by John de Lancie, Q from television’s Star Trek: The Next Generation, Cosmic Safari allows audiences to explore the mysteries of the universe. The search for life in the universe begins as we travel to yet undiscovered planets in the far reaches of space. In differing environmental conditions, you’ll discover what living creatures might look like on worlds very different from our own. From the giant insect-like life forms on low-gravity planets, to the highly muscular star-shaped creatures on high-gravity worlds, Cosmic Safari transforms scientific theory into exotic worlds filled with fantastic creatures never before imagined..

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