What stars, planets and constellations are in the skies tonight? As the Earth spins around the Sun, we will see different portions of the night sky.

Every week brings a slightly different visual spectacle to the skies overhead. In this live planetarium show inside the Omni Theatre, our Science Educator will bring you on a tour of the current night sky, point out the beautiful sights and listen to fascinating stories about the stars.
Book your stargazing slots at the Science Centre Observatory after the show, hang around admiring the celestial objects and interact with our Science Educators and Volunteers.
