This exciting, multi-disciplinary weekly series views the universe through
a variety of perspectives - from the scientific and technological, to the
philosophical and artistic - all under the giant Space Theater dome.
Through Eyes on the Universe, armchair astronomers hear and interact with
some of the great thinkers and researchers of our time, who often present
topics on the cutting edge of human thought.
On the first Wednesday of each month we present the enormously popular
live planetarium shows entitled The Sky Tonight, aimed toward backyard
astronomers who want to find their way among the stars and planets of the
night sky. These are followed by free telescope viewing with the San Diego
Astronomy Association (SDAA), and astronomical computer demonstrations by
the Mount Laguna Observatory Associates (MLOA).
