Join Astronomers in the Search for a New Ninth Planet!

When the New Horizons spacecraft flew by Pluto in 2015, it not only gave us our first close look at the dwarf planet, but also encouraged new theories about how our solar system formed — and what it may be hiding. Follow astronomer Mike Brown and his team as they uncover stunning dwarf worlds and attempt to learn more about an undiscovered planet orbiting around the edge of our solar system. This astronomy feature is followed by a live presentation that allows you to explore the stars like never before.

Book your group adventure today and see the moon like never before on our 76-foot Dome screen!

With discounted group rates, groups have the opportunity to schedule exclusive featured shows on Virginia’s largest movie screen.
