Planetarium technology has changed a lot over the past ten years, with programs becoming more sophisticated and immersive. And while the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium is proud to have the latest in digital audio-visual capabilities, we have not forgotten the fundamental purpose of a planetarium -- depicting a realistic night sky.
We are therefore proud to offer the program Skies Over Jacksonville, a detailed live star show. While all planetarium presentations at the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium include a brief tour of the heavens, Skies Over Jacksonville is dedicated totally to the wonders of backyard stargazing.
Visitors will join our planetarium educator in a journey across the sky as bright stars, asterisms, constellations and other surprises are identified and discussed. The presentation environment is that of a forum, not a lecture, so guests are encouraged to ask questions and participate in the adventure!
