This beautiful show highlights the life cycles and diversity of stars in the universe around us and is narrated by Sir Patrick Stewart, star of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Witness the amazing variety of stars and peer into their secret lives. Recommended for ages 6+

Tickets can be reserved 30 days in advance of each show. To reserve a ticket, visit www.scld.org/sfcc-planetarium.
