From November 23 to December 23, 2012
I love all the holiday event notifications coming my way. That means there are a lot of fun things for you and your family to enjoy this Christmas, as well as the rest of the holiday season!
Celebrate the season with two new shows at the Golden Pond Planetarium in the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area.
The planetarium offers shows daily from November 23 to December 23. Season of Light traces celestial reasons behind many of our holiday traditions that involve light–yule logs, lighted trees, luminaries, and Menorahs. The Star of Bethlehem offers a live interpretive program that guides audiences on the discovery of the “star” that brought the wise men to the Christ child those many years ago and what to expect in our skies this Christmas season.
Returning this year is the ever popular Laser Holidays. Enjoy many of your favorite holiday songs while lasers dance to music from Bing Cosby to Burl Ives and many others.
“For our new programs we’re including some astronomy education on popular winter constellations,” explained Ross Workman, Planetarium Manager. “We will discover why we have seasons and learn more about the earth’s tilt and orbit around the sun.”
Admission to the Golden Pond Planetarium is $4 ages 13 and up; $2 ages 5-12; free ages 4 and under. Laser Light Music Shows are $6. Groups of 10 or more may schedule shows at other times and receive group rates. Please call 270-924-2020 for more information. Shows and times are as follows:
