Tune-Out Tuesdays

Is the daily grind getting you down? Need a reset from your hectic month? Stop by the OtterBox Digital Dome Theater over your lunch break to treat yourself to a mid-month tune-out. Enjoy a short “Sky Tonight” astronomy presentation, then sit back and relax to soothing music and stunning 360-degree visions of the cosmos in the Dome.

If you arrive after noon, it will be dark in the Dome. Pause upon entering to allow your eyes time to adjust to the darkness and a Dome operator will help you find a seat. Bring your lunch – food & drink are welcome in the Dome.

Tune-Out Tuesdays | FREE Noon Event!

Please note: this program is designed to give people a quiet time to relax, and periods of long sitting can be difficult for some little ones. It may not be suitable for young children.
