2pm - STARS (25 minutes - Ages 8 and up)

STARS focuses on the lives of the stars, how they are born, how they die, and how human understanding of the stars has changed over time. From Native Americans to Newton, from the electromagnetic spectrum to Einstein, audiences will explore nebulae, star clusters, pulsars, black holes, and more.

3pm - Supermassive Black Holes: Uncovering the Invisible (25 minutes - Ages 12 and up)

Black holes are some of the most bizarre and fascinating objects in the cosmos. Astronomers want to study them, but there’s one big problem – black holes are invisible! Since they don’t emit any light, it’s pretty tough to find them lurking in the inky void of space. Fortunately, there are a few different ways we can “see” black holes indirectly by watching how they affect their surroundings.

4pm - MARS: The Ultimate Voyage (25 minutes - Ages 12 and up)

Ever wondered what it will take for astronauts to travel to the Moon, Mars, and beyond? On this long journey, what challenges will astronauts face? How will they stay motivated and healthy on their spacecraft so far away from Earth? The new, Bell original planetarium show Mars: The Ultimate Voyage, explores these questions and more!

Wednesdays: Special showing of the James Webb Telescope Update Show at 5pm (35 minutes - Ages 12 and up)

Grab the most stellar seat in in town on Wednesday and Sunday Evenings at 5:00pm when the Reading Public Museum, adds a new specially curated planetarium show at The Neag Planetarium. This unique show will feature the most up-to-date images and data from the James Webb Telescope.
