August 26th: Planetarium Feature “Sordid Secrets of the Stars”

Discover the sizzling stories behind the constellations in this planetarium event for adults (18+). Explore Eastern European mythology hidden in the sky as you take a trip through the cosmos during the ultimate planetarium adventure.

Medieval Slavic Europe was a wild place to be. In lands surrounded by dense forests and blanketed in winter snow, pagan beliefs mixed with Christianity, native peoples mixed with Rus Vikings, and Volkhvy priests stared up at the sky & made predictions. It’s no wonder that we are left today with so many bawdy & vulgar stories of the Slavs. In this specialty show, you’ll meet the colorful folk characters that the stars & planets are named after from countries such as Poland, Russia, Belarus, Macedonia, Serbia, & Ukraine. You’ll see a dazzling display of Slavic constellations, learn how to keep the invisible Domovoi who lives in your home happy, and how to avoid being seduced by a Rusalka or Vila. Much like all our Sordid Secrets, this is an adult event, as those ancient storytellers definitely didn’t keep things rated PG!

Our Planetarium is an inflatable dome. Guests sit on cushions on the floor of the planetarium to view the show. Due to size, space is limited to 20 patrons at a time. Purchasing tickets in advance is highly recommended for this reason. On show nights, please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled showing. In case of no-shows/late shows: reserved spots will be released at show time to make space for the next party.

Shows begin at 6 and 7 pm and last approximately 45 minutes.

Seating is limited and very popular. We encourage purchasing your tickets in advance, as this is a first come, first served event. Please call 850-664-1261, stop by the Science Center, or use our online ticketing option to purchase your tickets.

Pricing
Nonmembers: $10 Adult | $9 Senior
Members: $8 Adult | $7 Senior
Event for guests age 18 and up
