Follow two students as they interact with a female astronomer at a local star party. Along the way, they learn the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass — using two small pieces of glass — to the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. Aiming to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, the show explores the wonders and discoveries made by astronomers over the last 400 years.

Mondays - Thursdays @ 4:00 PM
Sundays @ 2:00 PM

Tickets are $6.50.
