About This Show

30th May @ 3:30pm

Duration 60min Approx

Come to the Planetarium for a flight of fancy to explore our planetary neighbours.

From hot little Mercury, closest planet to the Sun, past cloud-covered Venus, beautiful blue Earth strong and red Mars we head for the outer planets.

Through the rocky reaches of the Asteroid Belt beyond Mars, we speed pass giant Jupiter, Saturn with its beautiful rings, blue-green Uranus and on to deep blue Neptune, last of the Giant Planets. Beyond lie the icy dwarfs of the Kuiper Belt - worlds like Pluto and Eris. Fasten your seat belts for the trip of a lifetime.

Prices and Admission

Opening Times

Because we are a charity run by volunteers we are only open for the public shows from 45 minutes before the published show time. Therefore there is no facility to accomodate casual vistors.

Seating

The seats in the Dome are Aircraft seats set at an angle to provide the best possible view. These seats do not recline, they do however tilt forwards slightly to provide easy access to the rows behind when entering and leaving.
