Scale of the Universe

Scale of the Universe

The Planetarium’s Digistar visualization system creates an inspiring, immersive experience that can’t be conveyed on a flat screen. We begin at human scale, then we expand our view by powers of ten from 100 to 1026 meters, surveying the universe out to the observable limit. Visualizations based on real NASA data.

**Seating capacity may be limited in compliance with public health guidelines in effect on the day of your visit. Maximum capacity includes all students, teachers, aides, chaperones, parents, and siblings.
