The Golden Pond Planetarium in the Land Between the Lakes has some pretty amazing evening shows lined up for the 2017 summer season… and by “pretty amazing,” I mean absolutely spectacular.
Evening Planetarium Shows and Star Parties: The Planetarium offers evening Astronomy shows and the members of the West Kentucky Amateur Astronomers host Star Parties (weather permitting). Seasoned astronomers use telescopes to guide children and adults in observing the night sky. Observatory Star Parties follow the last show in the planetarium.
The Laser and evening planetarium showings and Star Parties offer indoor and outdoor activities after 5 pm starting in May and lasting all summer.
