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.

Experience the Aurora

Over seven months in the Arctic Circle, our crews captured timelapse images of the Aurora Borealis with high resolution digital SLR cameras outfitted with fisheye lenses. The results are spectacular. For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky. This immersive show shares the science behind the aurora and tells the story of our quest to find and photograph the aurora for wraparound display in full-dome theaters.
