Omnisphere Theater Shows


Earth, Moon, & Sun
Coyote has a razor sharp wit, but he’s a little confused about what he sees in the sky. Join this amusing character (adapted from American Indian oral traditions) in a fast-paced and fun fulldome show that explores lunar phases, eclipses and other puzzles. Engaging and immersive, Earth, Moon & Sun™ also examines how humans learn through space exploration.
This show may appear as the special presentation M-F at 10am or 12pm.


Super Volcanoes
Feel the heat! Super Volcanoes explores rare types of volcanic eruptions that marshal the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The story of these big blow outs is a tale of havoc and mayhem; mass extinctions, climate collapses, and violence beyond anything humans have ever witnessed. Audiences will explore the impact of volcanism on Earth and other worlds in our solar system. This show may appear as the special presentation M-F at 10am or 12pm.


Forward to the Moon

Produced by Fiske Planetarium in collaboration with TEND Studio.
Showtimes: Monday – Friday: 1:30pm, Saturday: 12pm, 2pm & 4pm.
