Many people envision a brilliant rendering of the night sky star field displayed on the domed theater screen whenever they think of a planetarium. All planetariums did tours of the night sky once upon a time. We used analog star instruments and it was the highlight of the programming. As our media moved more towards digital technology, many planetariums began featuring more dynamic offerings using all the new bells and whistles technology afforded.

We have also gone in this brave new direction, but we will also always keep one block each day dedicated to a live star show. This is that show, the one where we spend the full 45 minutes touring the sky, highlighting star patterns and planets currently visible in the early evening. We also highlight and discuss locating deep-sky objects, these are those objects of interest which are a little farther from home, things you may want to search for if you have a medium to large size telescope. And of course, all this brought to you via a live presentation with a real person talking to you. This is a live interpretation of the night sky and may not be suitable for younger audiences who might find it challenging to sit quietly through a live presentation.

Showtimes are 1:00 p.m. daily. Admission fees apply. Recommended for age 6 and above.

In this daytime laser offering, we get two stories associated with the constellations. These are classical Greek stories hundreds of years old. Perhaps you have heard versions of the same stories. The first story is the legend of Perseus and Andromeda, which takes a lighthearted and imaginative look at the myths associated with these prominent constellations. Narrated by Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse, the show brings to life the mythological figures of Perseus, Andromeda and a host of other characters in an action-packed epic story of heroism, romance and of course Astronomy. The second story looks at the myths associated with the constellation Orion, the great hunter of the winter sky. The show brings the mythological Orion to life in a fun-filled, animated adventure. Accompanied by narrators Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse, we follow Orion's adventures as he grows to manhood, battles mythical beasts, foils the plot of an evil king and wins the heart of Artemis, the beautiful moon-goddess. By the end of the story, we learn how the constellation Orion was placed in the sky, forever turning overhead throughout the seasons. This is not a traditional planetarium show. It is a bright and colorful laser light show produced in the spirit of a cartoon. We do also have this show available as a traditional planetarium show, which is a full-dome animated version of the same show. Admission fees apply. For details, call (270) 924-2233.

Some of this debris collides with the Earth daily and is harmless. Some of the other objects may also collide with us, but we surely hope not. But we know it has happened before as you will learn in the show. Dedicated nightly searches are carried out around the globe using the most sophisticated instruments and computer software to detect Near Earth Objects (NEOs). A collision with a large comet or asteroid has the potential to destroy an entire civilization and change the course of history. Just ask the dinosaurs. Admission fees apply.

This show is one that we have brought back to our line-up again many times... because our visitors love it. It may even be somewhat of a classic here at Golden Pond. Two junior high students attend an evening star party where they get to view planets through a massive Newtonian reflector telescope. In the process they learn all about the history and the development of the telescope, as well as all the things humanity has gleaned since Galileo first turned his spyglass to the heavens. As you know, this must be a lot of information. We have come a long way in our understanding of the cosmos since 1611 when the telescope was invented. If you have been thinking about getting a telescope, then you really should visit us and enjoy Two Small Pieces of Glass. Admission fees apply. Showtimes are Saturdays and Sundays at 4pm.
