Let’s stay connected during this time of social distancing. We are successfully streaming planetarium shows as a way to keep people looking up and learning about astronomy. Every week, see what’s new in the sky and explore an astronomy topic in-depth with GLAS staff and astronomers.

You can watch all of our previous episodes here or on YouTube and don’t forget to join us live every Friday night! As long as there is an advisory to stay home and be safe we will be streaming with new content every week.

You can subscribe to our YouTube page or submit the form at the top of the page to get regular updates about our programs.
