The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium Presents: Phantom of the Universe - The Hunt for Dark Matter

Join us for a 10 minute tour of the objects of interest for stargazers in our evening sky followed by a half hour investigation into the subject of dark matter!

From the journey of protons racing through the world’s largest particle collider in Europe to up-close views of the Big Bang and emergent cosmos, Phantom of the Universe is a new fulldome planetarium show designed to immerse audiences in the search for dark matter. Narrated by Tilda Swinton

The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium Presents: The Sun - Our Living Star

It is our nearest star and our planet’s powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather and all life. The passage of the Sun’s fiery disc across the sky — day by day, month by month — was the only way to keep track of time for countless past civilisations. Don’t be fooled by the terminology; although it is a typical dwarf star, the Sun consumes 600 million tons of hydrogen each second and is 500 times as massive as all the planets combined. Discover the secrets of our star in this planetarium show and experience never-before-seen images of the Sun’s violent surface in immersive fulldome format.

The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium Presents: Prescott Spring Night Sky

For one weekend only, the Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium will be bringing back the our mostly highly rated show from our seasonal night sky series of last year: Prescott Spring Night Sky!

We will be looking at spring constellations, visible planets, and distant galaxies in this live show narrated by Eric Edelman, Planetarium Director. It will be (mostly) the same as last year, so only come by if you have not seen it or are looking for a refresher!
