Night Skies is a program featuring Mike Francis, a physical science and physics teacher and former 10-year lecturer at the Charles Hayden Planetarium at Boston’s Museum of Science. Night Skies uses Starlab, an inflatable planetarium dome and projector system, to create a remarkably realistic night sky. After entering the giant bubble, the lights dim and the evening sky appears. Experience the wonder of the universe! Registration required. (Visit and earn 25 points)
