CALENDAR of Online Planetarium Shows & Events

We are now hosting online planetarium shows (both movies and live interactive star shows), and also streaming live events with local commentary and Q&A. Our hosts are Professor Patricia Reiff of Rice and Adjunct Professor Carolyn Sumners (VP of Astronomy and Physical Science at the Houston Museum of Natural Science).

Links are posted here to sign up to view and participate by asking live questions of the hosts and special guests each time. Our Fall 2020 schedule will have a monthly sky show (using Stellarium so you can learn yourself), and a monthly planetarium show for all.

Please take our Doodle Poll to see what showtimes are being considered and let us know which ones are the best for you.

Below you will also find links to the HMNS Planetarium At Home monthly shows linked to purchase tickets.

Thanks to the Department of Physics and Astronomy and the NASA Space Science Education Consortium for sponsoring these programs.
