“Star of Wonder” Christmas Show Returns!

That’s right! VBAS’s Saturday evening shows are resuming in December with this year’s Christmas show! Seating is limited and must be reserved in advance, read below for details.

All planetarium shows have limited seating and a reservation is required.  To reserve a seat go to our Events calendar and click on the date you wish to attend.  There will be a link where you can make a reservation.

Admission for a show is $5 for adults, $3 for students.  VBAS members are free.

When the sky is clear and the planetarium is open on Saturday nights there will be telescopes in the observing field after dark.  No reservation is required and there is no admission fee for this ‘star party’.  There will not be a star party if the planetarium is closed or if the sky is cloudy.

Until shows reopen on December 4th, we’ll gather in the field for observing shortly before dark. If the sky is overcast viewing will be cancelled.
