Exciting Astronomy Programs for Individuals and the Entire Family!

All programs are approximately 90 minutes in duration with shorter versions available and use a Microsoft PowerPoint slide presentation with exciting video footage, and hands-on activities when appropriate.  Customized programs for any audience are available as well.  Following each presentation, video recorded views through a powerful telescope will be shown of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and craters on the Moon.

In-house or remote virtual visitations from the Star Tour remove the limits on providing a memorable experience for your group at any time.  Though live telescope viewing is not available, video recordings of the Moon and Planets through the telescope at the conclusion of each program make it just as exciting, if not better.  Our awesome virtual astronomy programs make learning about the universe a satisfying and incredible experience. Live 90 minute presentations using Zoom from an expert astronomer.
