Introductory Astronomy for Kids - Galaxies


Wednesday, October 03, 2018


McMaster University Planetarium
1280 Main St W
Burke Science Building
Hamilton, ON L8S

Join us at the planetarium for a show especially geared toward younger audiences (8-15 years old) and their family members. You've seen the Sun and the Moon, the planets, and the Hamilton night sky, but what's beyond the Solar System? In this show, we'll journey through the Milky Way and discuss our Solar System's place in the Galaxy and our Galaxy's place in the Universe. How long will it take to get to the nearest stars and to visit other worlds? What's in the centre of the Galaxy? How does our Galaxy compare to others? We'll answer all of these questions and more!
Show Times: 5:45pm, 7:00pm
