Seasons of Light
The Beazley Planetarium is proud to bring back an old holiday favorite; Seasons of Light. Join us in the planetarium to learn about the celestial connection with many of the season’s holiday traditions. If you ever wondered about the reasons we celebrate how and when we do, Seasons of Light is for you.

Santa’s Secret Star What?
Santa has lost his compass and can’t find his way home? Sounds like a disaster in the making! Can the stars help? Learn about the day and night sky and how the stars seem to make pictures in the sky in our newest holiday show for young stargazers. Learn how YOU, too, can find Santa’s secret star!

Let It Snow
Get your holiday groove on with Let It Snow. The Beazley Planetarium comes alive with holiday classics from Frank Sinatra, Burl Ives, Brenda Lee, The Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and others. Feel free to sing along and get in a festive mood.
