Parallax is our monthly members exclusive planetarium series. Inspired by the astronomical term that refers to apparent changes in position with different viewing angles, this ongoing series explores different perspectives in astronomy from the past, present, and future. Our Parallax series features either a sneak peak of new planetarium shows or unique live presentations not available to the public.
This month will be the last showing of our live presentation Ancient Astronomy: Egyptian Skies, and takes place on May 26th. Our astrophysicist and student of Egyptology will lead you through Egyptian astronomy including mythology, constellations, and the science of archaeoastronomy.
Parallax is free for members, however seating is limited so you must RSVP. Showings occur on the last Friday of each month beginning at 7:40pm with an encore of the same presentation at 8:20pm. It is recommended that all attendees be 8 years of age and older due to the high density of information in these special presentations. If the weather is clear, you can also follow up with our weekly star party. Sign up for this month’s presentation below.
