Each of our fall planetarium shows will familiarize viewers with the constellations, planets and bright deep-sky objects currently visible, as well as any exciting upcoming celestial events. The latter part of each show will then focus on a different specific topic, including such possibilities as the star lore of different cultures, discoveries in solar physics, planetary exploration, the search for exoplanets, galaxies and cosmology, or the discoveries of recent and current space science missions.
The dates for fall 2018 public shows are:
September 14 and 28
November 2, 16 and 30
Each evening will consist of two shows, one at 6 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m.
Please plan to purchase tickets ahead of time. Shows usually sell out far in advance and tickets will not be sold the night of the show. Please arrive 10 minutes early to check in.

The String Orchestra of the Rockies’ November concert focuses on our educational outreach and shines the spotlight on our talented local young string students as they join us in a side-by-side collaborative performance of “Muse” by the Grammy-nominated American composer Christopher Theofanidis.
This brilliant, fiery, neo-Baroque work is inspired by the 3rd Brandenburg concerto of Bach, which will be performed on the program as well. Praised by the New York Times as “stunning, incisive and radiant,” our newly appointed Artistic Director Maria Larionoff will be featured as violin soloist in the jazzy, tango-inspired “Invierno Porteno” by Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla and the beloved “Winter” from Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
The program opens with Maria Larionoff and Margaret Baldridge, UM Professor and Concertmaster of the Missoula Symphony, in the wonderful double violin concerto of Bach.
