Stars: Powerhouses of the Universe Planetarium Show

Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that powers the Universe. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of stars.

Suitable for audiences of all ages, this dramatic program features narration by Mark Hamill and stunning 3D animation by NSC creative at the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK. Come see the stars up close and personal!

During the 1-hour long show we will also help you identify the brightest planets and constellations visible in the night sky.
