1pm - Let it Snow

Let it Snow is a treat for the eyes and ears, featuring festive full-dome video images choreographed to classic holiday music. Enjoy seasonal tunes by Frank Sinatra, Chuck Berry, Burl Ives, and Brenda Lee, and a finale by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. This animated show has kids, parents, and grandparents humming or singing along to some of the classics associated with the holiday season!

2pm - Magic Globe: A Story of the Seasons

Magic Globe is an engaging story designed to interest and challenge children from 5 to 12 years old. It has a clear educational structure with all science-related topics broken down into manageable chunks and naturally woven into the storyline. It allows children to recap knowledge they already have as well as learn multiple new concepts while following the story, which makes it perfect for mixed-ability audiences.

3pm - Unveiling the Invisible Universe

For thousands of years the humans observed the light coming from the night sky with their eyes. In the beginning of the 17th century, the invention of the telescope by Galileo revolutionized our knowledge of the Universe. Finally, in the 20th century with the advent of rockets, it became possible to go above the earth’s atmosphere and observe X-ray and gamma ray radiation which are the marks of the hot and violent Universe. But it is not only light that can give us information about the cosmos. Neutrinos and cosmic rays also provide vital information. Finally, the detection by The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) experiment of gravitational waves from two merging black holes opened a new window in astrophysics. This planetarium program presents images of the cosmos as revealed by all these different messengers.

4pm - Season of Light

This presentation traces the history and development of the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season — from the burning Yule log, sparkling Christmas tree lights and candles in windows, to the lighting of luminarias in the American Southwest and the traditional ritual of the Hanukkah Menorah.

5pm - The James Webb Space Telescope Show

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.
