Laser Projection System

The SMSU Planetarium has a new full-dome LASER projection system!
...and a new lineup of full-dome laser shows.

Andromeda
Legends of the Night Sky

Perseus and Andromeda

Perseus

Legends of the Night Sky takes a light-hearted and imaginative look at the myths and stories associated with the Constellations. This show is 20 minutes of full dome laser fun and at the same time teaches kids and adults the Greek stories about the stars.  Legends of the Night Sky is narrated by two wonderful characters, Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse. They provide the night time "classroom" atmosphere with comedy and wit. Based on constellations viewed in the fall sky, Perseus and Andromeda is a story filled with humorous and exciting characters including Pegasus, the winged horse; Cetus, the sea monster; Perseus, the mighty warrior; and the fearsome monster Medusa. This entertaining tale is designed to engage the audience and stimulate interest in learning about the night sky.


Legends of the Night Sky
orion

Accompanied by narrators Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse, we follow Orion's adventures as he grows to manhood, battles mythical beasts, foils the plot of an evil king and wins the heart of Artemis, the beautiful moon-goddess. By the end of the story, we learn how the constellation Orion was placed in the sky, forever turning overhead throughout the seasons.


Paradigm Shifts
A brief exploration of the Universe through Space and Time

This beautifully done show covers how humanity's thinking has shifted as revolutions in astronomy reshaped man's  perceptions.  Broken into three parts:  MYTHS & MODELS takes a brief look at how the ancient Egyptians believed the Sun god Ra was carried across the sky by boat and the night goddess Nut arched her starry body over the Earth.  The ancient Greeks named some of the constellations and came up with a heavenly order that consisted of crystalline spheres centered on the immoveable Earth.  THE NEW UNIVERSE presents how Copernicus challenges 1,000 years of thought by placing the Sun at the center and the Earth as just one of several planets circling the Sun.  Later humanity comes to know that the Sun is just one star in a local group of stars in orbit within the Milkyway galaxy, and the Milkyway is a member of a local group of galaxies and the local group of galaxies is part of a cluster and clusters form into super clusters.  TIME & BEYOND briefly highlights that our universe is always changing, stars evolve and some explode and even form into black holes.
