International Space Station Tours

International Space Station Tours

November's public shows were focussed on human spaceflight. But an hour just isn't long enough to include everything we'd like to share. Below are a couple of my favorite tours of the International Space Station (ISS). Enjoy!

  • ISS Guided Tour:  (30 minutes; YouTube) Commander Sunita Williams takes us on a tour of the space station before she heads home to Earth. 
  • Google Maps "street view" tour of ISS:  Explore the inside of of the space station using the Google Maps Street View interface.

Eclipse Glasses for Sale!

Be safe, order a pair for everyone in the family!


Be prepared to look at the October 14, 2023 and the April 8, 2024 Solar eclipses!

Did you know the sun is a great object to look at any day... sometimes its sunspots are so large that you can see them with just your eyes (protected with these amazing eclipse glasses, of course) from our spaceship Earth at more than 93,000,000 miles away.

Glasses purchased must be picked up at the planetarium by appointment or at any of our public events.   Cost is $5 per pair with all proceeds directly benefiting the planetarium.  Send an email to the planetarium to arrange for a pickup time.

Cash or check is our preferred method of payment but payment through our online store is possible, if you have to use a credit card.

Buy a pair for yourself, every family member, as a gift, or simply donate the purchase so that we can provide safe eclipse glasses to others in our community.

Additional donations welcomed!!
