Stars: The Powerhouses of the Universe
January 8-March 20, 2022
2:00 PM Saturday and Sunday
Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that powers the Universe. Journey to the farthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of STARS. Narrated by Mark Hamill. Great for adults and kids ages 9 and older.
Tickets can be purchased online, at the door, or over the phone at 810-237-3400.
