From Earth to the Universe

The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity's oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos. Learn about this journey of celestial discovery, from the theories of the ancient Greek astronomers to today's grandest telescopes. 

Viewers can revel in the splendour of the various worlds in the Solar System and the ferocity of the scorching Sun. From Earth to the Universe then leaves our home to take the audience out to the colourful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way.

This is a ticketed event. Please purchase tickets at the WWU Box Office. (Tickets are not sold at the door.) The Dr. Leslie E. Spanel Planetarium is located in Haggard Hall Room 313.
