We’re reopening our doors to the public on Saturday, November 7. Here’s what you need to know to plan a fun, safe visit to the new Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.

What you Need to Know

Cosmic Colors

Experience a wondrous journey across the entire electromagnetic spectrum.

Discover the many reasons for color—like why the sky is blue and why Mars is red. Take a tour within a plant leaf and journey inside the human eye. Investigate x-rays by voyaging to a monstrous black hole and then back at your doctor’s office. You will even see the actual color of a dinosaur—based on recent evidence. Get ready for an amazing adventure under a rainbow of cosmic light!

“Cosmic Colors” was produced by the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium in cooperation with the Great Lakes Planetarium Association.
