Some of them are going to be like our own Sun, some of them will be smaller, and some will be much, much bigger. Find out about new stars and the places we can see them, and what this means for our understanding of our Sun and our place in the Galaxy. Includes presentation, short 3D movie, tour of the dome and viewing of the night sky through a range of telescopes (weather permitting). $18.00 Adult $12.00 Child/Concession $50.00 Family (2 adults + 2 children) Children under 3 years of age free.
