The Sky Tonight

Join us on the first Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. or 8:15 p.m. for a tour of the solar system narrated by the Fleet’s astronomer. Journey through the cosmos with us as we explore a new topic each month.

Free telescope viewing with the San Diego Astronomy Association available outside after the shows, weather permitting. This is a separate event held on the first Wednesday of each month.

Due to the darkness required in the theater and the sophisticated nature of the material presented, planetarium shows are not recommended for children 5 years and under.
