Mystery of the Christmas Star Returns!

Fri, 4 Dec 2015 7:00 PM - Sun, 20 Dec 2015 3:00 PM

Our most popular show of every year, Mystery of the Christmas Star, returns to the John C. Wells Planetarium! This has quickly become a Christmas tradition at the planetarium and always plays to a packed house! Tell your friends, bring your visiting family members, and don't miss this great seasonal show!

Mystery of the Christmas Star allows audiences to journey back 2000 years to Bethlehem in pursuit of a scientific explanation of the star the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus. This modern retelling of the Christmas story is sure to charm and captivate audiences of all ages.  

Presentations this year will be on Friday and Saturday evenings at 7p.m., and Sunday afternoons at 2p.m., from December 4 to 20! Following each screening, we will raise our incredible Goto Chronos starball to highlight the Valley sky -- the stars, consteillations and planets you can see at that time of the year in your backyard.

Please join us! Share with your friends and family on Facebook!
