UNO invites you to a fun and engaging panoramic movie experience at the Mallory Kountze Planetarium located in the Durham Science Building at UNO. A movie will be played in the planetarium which will be projected around the dome for an interesting and unique movie experience. Afterward, there will be a follow-up star talk using a simulated star projection of the night sky. Admission for this event is 4$ per person sold at the door. Doors open 20 minutes prior to the event. Free parking is provided during the weekends on UNO campus. This event takes place on Saturday January 12th at 5:30 p.m. and lasts about 1 hour. There is also a showing at 4:00 p.m.

Two Small Pieces of Glass: The Amazing Telescope full-dome show follows two students as they interact with a female astronomer at a local star party.
Along the way, the students learn the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass — using two small pieces of glass — to the launch of the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. Aiming to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, the show explores the wonder and discovery made by astronomers throughout the last 400 years.
