The Merrillville Community Planetarium presents Adventures Along the Spectrum, a public program beginning on April 12 and continuing through April 27. The show will be presented on Friday, April 12, 19, and 26, and Saturday, April 20 and 27 at 7:30 p.m. Additional showings may be added if needed. The planetarium opens for seating 30 minutes before the show begins. No one will be admitted after the program starts.

This is a family presentation of one of our school programs for 3rd to 5th grade. Professor Photon leads the audience on an adventure from the familiar world of visible light to the invisible and eerie realms of the energy spectrum. A look at the spring sky follows the main program.

Admission to public programs is $4.00 for adults and $2.00 for children. Sorry, but we cannot accept debit or credit cards. Seating is limited and should be reserved by calling (219) 650-5486 or here on the web site. Large groups can arrange for a private show by calling the planetarium at (219) 650-5486.

This is the third of four public programs for the 2018-2019 school year. Our next public show, "Apollo 11: The First Landing on the Moon," will be in July 2019. The planetarium is located in Clifford Pierce Middle School at 199 East 70th Avenue in Merrillville, Indiana. Please park and enter on the west side of the building.
