Science East staff will be on hand to guide you through an unforgettable trip through space! Enter the portable sky dome to enjoy a fascinating journey - speed past the moons of Jupiter, soar through the Orion constellation and land on the outer limits of the Milky Way galaxy. Watch meteor showers, zoom in on the rings of Saturn, and speed up time to observe the night sky on your birthday.

The portable Planetarium, unique to New Brunswick, is a recent addition to Science East.  It is both inflatable and portable, allowing it to travel to different venues throughout the province. New Brunswick Museum Director Jane Fullerton comments, “The International Year of Astronomy is a great time to discover and celebrate the wonder of the universe.  Visiting the Planetarium provides an opportunity to understand the fascinating discoveries that have been made and spark discussion for the future.”

The Planetarium is designed for all ages to experience, from tots to adults. The planetarium can hold up to 35 people at each show and may be booked by groups.  There are several show times available each day; pre-registration is recommended.  Call 643-2349 or 1-888-268-9595.
