Join us for our Summer Skies live presentation, we’ll view the notable constellations for the summer months and start you on your own stargazing journey. We’ll also blast off from Earth and fly through a distant nebula and learn how astronomers of the past studied this spectacular interstellar phenomenon.

This show is perfect for amateur stargazers and inquisitive minds.  Adults and students 4th grade and up will find the most value in this 30-40 minute presentation.

Programming in the Caperton Planetarium & Theater is brought to you with support from Truist West Virginia Foundation.
