Sky Over Macon
Explore space, the constellations and planets visible from Central Georgia in Sky Over Macon in the Mark Smith Planetarium.
The show starts with a general tour of the heavenly sights visible each season, then a live presentation updates the current position of the planets and special events in the sky.
Updated each week, this program provides the latest information about current and upcoming celestial events for those who want to learn how to find constellations or planets in the sky or how to increase their knowledge of astronomy.
Sky Over Macon is held at various times—usually on the Fourth Friday of every month in 2014—but please call the Museum at 478.477.3232 for the actual schedule of showings or check in the List of Events to confirm the dates and times.
The Planetarium show begins at 8:15 pm (the doors open at 8:00 pm) and standard Museum admission applies.
Join us in the Observatory after the Planetarium’s Sky Over Macon show to see the real night sky through our telescopes!
Observing, which is free for all, begins after the Planetarium show and lasts until 10 pm.
