Polaris: Mystery of the Polar Night

February 19, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A traveling penguin from the South Pole and a funny polar bear from the North Pole meet on Arctic sea ice. They become friends observing the night sky together and wondering why night is so long at the poles of the Earth. This mystery leads them on a scientific adventure as they build an improvised spaceship to travel around the Earth to learn about seasons, and visit Mars and Saturn to learn about ice in the solar system and how planets have similarities and differences that make them unique.

Tickets for planetarium programs are $6 for adults, $5 for UMaine students/veterans/senior citizens, and $4 for children under 12. Click here to view the calendar.
