Staerkel Planetarium has added shows for the fall, so it’s time to take a look and see what sort of astronomical things you can be learning about over the next few months. Some of their ole standbys are there, like Fall Prairie Skies and Dark Side of the Moon. They will also continue to have sensory friendly shows and some Spanish language shows.

In October, they will add Coyote Explores the “Earth, Moon and Sun for grades 2-6, The StarGazer which looks at gravity, light, and the spectrum, and will resume the Kaler Science Lecture Series.

I spy a couple of weekends worth of laser shows, which look intriguing. I’m sure we will post about those more as they approach.

Head to the Staerkel Planetarium website to view the full calendar.
