CSN Planetarium shows
Welcome to Southern Nevada’s only public planetarium, where the stars are literally the stars of the show. Our 66-seat theater features an Evans & Sutherland Digistar 5 high definition hemispheric video projection system. By creating virtual realities on our impressive 30-foot dome, we surround visitors with simulated educational and entertaining content in an environment that is unparalleled in Southern Nevada.
Shows run Fridays and Saturdays at 6, 7 and 8 p.m. General admission is $6, discount admission for children, military, seniors and students in $4. The Planetarium is located at 3200 E. Cheyenne Avenue, North Las Vegas, NV, 89030.
Fridays & Saturdays at 6 p.m., Saturdays at 3:30 p.m.: Earth, Moon & Sun
This planetarium show explores the relationship between Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions. Coyote has many misconceptions about our home planet and its most familiar neighbors. His confusion about the universe makes viewers think about how Earth, Moon and Sun work together as a system and learn to distinguish between myths and science.
Fridays & Saturdays at 7 p.m.: From Earth to the Universe
The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has inspired awe and been the subject of campfire stories, and ancient myths for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. To learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes, we invite you to experience From Earth to the Universe.
Fridays & Saturdays at 8 p.m.: Stars of the Pharaohs
