About this show

Since many people come to the planetarium specifically for the “what’s up in the night sky” presentation, star talks are the quintessential planetarium presentation, the bread and butter of a star theater’s repertoire. »Seasonal Stargazing« is an extremely versatile set of star shows. Each of the four »Seasonal Stargazing« show (spring, summer, autumn, winter) highlights the most prominent and easy-to-find stars and constellations of the season. Audience members see and hear star names and constellations, and learn to star-hop for popular deep-sky objects. The skies are depicted from 40° North latitude. Most of the featured objects are prominent in their seasonal sky, and visible from latitudes well above and below 40°.
