Spend an enchanted evening with us as we transform the Planetarium Star Theatre into a starry soirée for Valentine’s Day. Enjoy drinks, appetizers, activities, and a live musical performance by Jody Glenham. Sit in on a playful debate as astronomers discuss whether Venus or Mars is the best planets for colonization...and love! This is a 19+ event.

Purchase a ticket for either the 7:30pm or 9:00pm planetarium show. Come early or stay late for a drink and to take in a live demonstration or interactive presentation. Doors open at 6:00pm and the night will come to an end at 10:30pm.

6:30pm — 10:30pm Cosmic Courtyard Space Exhibits
Our exhibit space will be open throughout the evening. Beer, wine, and a special gin cocktail from Long Table Distillery will be available for purchase at the bar. We will also be serving appetizers and will have painting stations, activities and displays set up.

7:30pm or 9:00pm — Planetarium Star Theatre show
Musician Jody Glenham will play a set of covers and original songs set to beautiful cosmic visuals in our planetarium. In between songs Jody and our Program Coordinator will guide you through the universe and delve into themes of duality like Venus and Mars.

8:00pm or 9:00pm – Interactive Presentation “Venus vs Mars: Battle of the Planets!”
Two of our astronomy educators will have a cosmic battle and pitch their cases for Venus or Mars. Which planet would be more suitable to send humans to? Which could help us learn more about Earth? Who will be the winner – Venus or Mars?
