The Beazley Planetarium is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing July 1969 with a festival Luna!  We are bringing back a few lunar favorites like Earth, Moon & Sun, and Back to the Moon For Good, as well as our new special showing of Apollo 11 Man’s First Step onto the Moon.

Back to the Moon for Good

The Beazley Planetarium is proud to bring back Back to the Moon For Good to celebrate the Golden Anniversary of man’s greatest achievement – man’s landing on the Moon.  It also presents an opportunity to look back at the scientific competition that was the Google Lunar X prize.

Narrated by Tim Allen, this show features stunning visuals and provides an insider’s look into what it takes to get back to the Moon.

Earth, Moon & Sun

A tricky coyote is our master of ceremony and guest lecturer.  It seems that our designated scientist had other pressing commitments.  Unfortunately, Coyote has a few things a bit off.  Can he ever get past all the science misconceptions to teach all of the relationship between Earth, Moon and Sun?  You can find out about why the Sun rises and sets, moon motions, and phases, and how the sun makes all its energy daily in the Beazley Planetarium.

Apollo 11 – Man’s First Steps onto the Moon

The Beazley Planetarium is proud to announce its newest show offering: Apollo 11 – Man’s First Steps onto the Moon.  This inspirational show takes you back to the summer of 1969, when NASA and the whole world was transfixed with the Apollo 11 crew’s great journey to another world of magnificent desolation!

Fly along with “Columbia” and the lunar landing module “Eagle” from Earth to their destiny: the Sea of Tranquility.

Apollo 11 – Man’s First Steps onto the Moon is a perfect show to remember and celebrate man’s greatest accomplishment.

One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

Grossology and You

“Grossness is in the eye of the beholder!” The Beazley Planetarium is studying our inner universe in this immersive feature. After watching this planetarium show, you may start thinking differently about the “gross” side of the human body and what it does to protect us every day.

Join Noreen Neuron, host of the “Personal Universe” game show, as she leads us through a competition to decide which body system is the best and brightest. Will it be Scabby (the immune system), Boogie (the respiratory system) or Flatus (the digestive system)? Laugh and learn as these animated characters explore the inner workings of the human body!
