Online Movies and Educator Resources

Planetarium movies are provided here until restrictions on social distancing are lifted and shows are hosted again at the MLC. The planetarium movies are part of a special arrangement with one of our full-dome movie vendors, Spitz. As part of that agreement a text crawl appears every few minutes during the movie. The movies are accessible via a link to an external webpage (click on the movie poster), followed by a link for an educator guide when available. Sky Tours and Space News are updated monthly on the MLC homepage.
