View Stars Like Never before as You Peer into Their Secret Lives!

Every star has a story. Their unique tales are told over millions of years and continue long after their death. With a nearly inexhaustible supply adorning the night sky, these sparkling spheres of gas tell dramatic tales of what type of life they will lead, how long they might live and even the type of death they will experience. This astronomy feature is followed by a live presentation that allows you to explore the stars like never before.

This film is available for groups to book. It is not part of the Museum's public film library. At this time, the Museum is not accepting group Dome reservations, but check back for updates.

Book your group adventure today and the stars 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.
