Planet Nine
Planetarium Show: Planet Nine Friday, July 12 8:00 PM @ Rollins Planetarium
In 2015, the New Horizons spacecraft gave us our first close look at Pluto, the most famous dwarf planet in the outskirts of our solar system. The pictures sent back to Earth reveal a world far more complex than anyone realized. Now scientists are making new discoveries about our solar system—and what it may be hiding: an object 10 times more massive than Earth far beyond the orbit of Neptune. Follow astronomer Mike Brown and his team as they uncover dwarf worlds like the remarkably bright Eris, egg-shaped Haumea and Sedna, whose orbit takes it deep into the far reaches of the solar system. Is there a new planet beyond these distant objects? We’ll tag along on Brown’s first night searching for a true ninth planet at the Subaru Telescope in Hawaii. Join us on the hunt!

Apollo 11: One Giant Leap Friday, July 19 7:00 PM @ O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium

This special program commemorates the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, the first mission to land humans on the surface of the Moon. Take a look back at how the astronauts of Apollo 11 arrived in lunar orbit on July 19, 1969 and completed a successful lunar landing the following day. The mission fulfilled a national goal set by President John F. Kennedy in 1961: send astronauts to land on the Moon and return them safely to the Earth.
