The Jim and Linda Lee Planetarium Presents: Romance Among the Stars

We are bringing back our Valentine's themed show from last February. If you did not see it last year, or would like to see it again, here is your chance!

The universe may be pretty cold and empty, but it is not without its spots of fire, fury, and frenzy. Join us as we travel across the cosmos this February to visit some of the most romantic spots and situations in space. By the end of our journey, we will find ourselves right at the heart of the matter, which may not be quite where you would first expect. The experience will be narrated live by Planetarium Director Eric Edelman.
