Planetarium Show
The show will consist of two professionally produced planetarium shows, "Wonders of the Universe" and "New Horizons", as well as a live segment introducing the audience to that night’s sky.

The "New Horizons" show follows a comet on a journey throughout the Solar System. From breathtaking landscapes to violent volcanic eruptions to the sheer beauty of Saturn’s rings, explore the planets and moons of the solar system in a majestic journey through our celestial neighborhood. Audiences will travel down to the surface of the planets, and experience what life would be like from those brave new worlds.

In "Wonders of the Universe" the audience will peer deep into space through the eyes of the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope and travel back billions of years in time to witness the birth of the universe. On this breathtaking excursion, you’ll witness the formation of galaxies and explore some of the most wondrous nebulae and astronomical structures yet discovered.

The stars and planets visible above Bellevue will also be discussed so audience members can go home and stargaze from their own backyards.

The Planetarium is a special domed-ceiling room where the nighttime sky is accurately reproduced. The show is not recommended for kids under the age of six. Because the room is dark during the show, there is no late admission.
