Tombaugh’s Planet

October 2, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

Free and open to the public.

In 1930, after years of searching, a Kansas farm boy discovered Planet X. This object was later renamed Pluto. This program tells of Clyde Tombaugh’s remarkable achievement and the amazing discoveries made in July of 2015 when the New Horizons space probe beamed to Earth the first close-up images of this small frozen world.

Intended Audience: Ages 10+
Runtime: Approximately 45 minutes

Planetarium shows are free of charge. No tickets or reservations are required, but plan to arrive early for the best seats. We do our best to open doors 30 minutes before show time. The Charles W. Brown Planetarium is located on the west end of the Cooper Science Complex, located along Riverside Avenue. There is no food or drink allowed in the planetarium. Children 12 years and under should be accompanied by an adult. All programs are approximately 45 minutes in length.
