Past Events

Free Arabic planetarium shows
This show is suitable for people of all ages, we have had as young as 3 and as old as 80! This is our way, as astronomers, of saying welcome to refugee newcomers. We hope there will be interest in these shows, as it celebrates Arab contributions to the field of astronomy. It also connects these contributions to modern day astronomy while flying through the cosmos in the planetarium!
