Westminster College Planetarium Shows 

“Let it Snow: A Holiday Music Journey” will be shown at 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.  This show features a variety of festive Christmas songs visually enhanced with theatrical animation and scenery. You’ll hear holiday classics while nutcrackers, snowmen, reindeer and candy canes dance overhead. There will also be a brief live tour of winter constellations. Outdoor skygazing will follow both screenings, weather permitting. This show is recommended for all ages.

“Mystery of the Christmas Star” will run from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  Journey back 2,000 years to Bethlehem as we seek to discover a scientific explanation for the Star the wise men followed to find baby Jesus. We’ll investigate possible dates for the birth of Christ and look at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events. Outdoor skygazing will follow, weather permitting. This show is recommended for ages 8 and up.
