James H. Planetarium and Science Theater presents: From the Earth to the Universe.

The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. Go on a journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today's grandest telescopes.  Revel in the splendor of various worlds, scorching stars, and the unimaginable immensity of a myriad of galaxies. Tues.-Fri, 2pm; Sat., 11am and 1pm; Sun., 2 PM,
