Planetarium Show: 'Season of Light'
Season of Light
Our annual family favorite "Season of Light" will fill you with seasonal sparkle! A holiday classic, now in fulldome format, this show explores the many festivals of light (including Christmas and Hanukah) that celebrate the spirit of renewal around the Winter Solstice, the shortest day and longest night of the year. Full of popular holiday music, you'll learn the origins of today's Christmas songs and customs. And you’ll discover how the dark days of winter have inspired luminous festival traditions in other times and cultures, and how all of those traditions connect back to astronomy. Noah Adams from National Public Radio narrates the show.
Recommended for general audiences.
