Watch the winter sky come to life before your eyes. See a stunning seven-month time lapse of the Aurora Borealis, commonly known as the Northern Lights, as it shimmers and glistens in a breathtaking display. Occurring when energized particles react with the atmosphere, this incredible natural phenomenon encircles Earth’s poles to put on a magnificent light show. This astronomy feature is followed by a live presentation that allows you to explore the stars like never before!

The Science Museum of Virginia is moving to a new online ticketing system.
The great news is that our new system will make it easier than ever to buy your tickets online.
The bummer is we have to go offline while we make the switch.
So, starting Jan. 1, 2018, online tickets will not be available for a short period of time.
