about Charles Hayden Planetarium:
The Planetarium conducts guided "tours" of New England's sky and also has special shows. The big draw, as with most Planetariums, are the laser shows. Sound and light combine to provide one, incredible show. Musical offerings range from the Star Wars soundtrack to popular and rock music. Laser shows are Thu-Sun evenings.
On Friday evenings the Gilliand Observatory has two telescopes that offer spectacular views of the real heavens above. Hours are 8:30pm-10pm. On Saturdays, from 11:30am-2pm, you and the kids can look at the sun through rose-colored glasses. Well, special filters anyway.
