In honor of spring break, the Planetarium is planning something out of this world. As part of its seasonal adventure, “Here Comes the Sun,” you can explore the awesome power of the nearest and brightest star through special weekly programs including Young Explorers Mondays, where the youngest explorers can go adrift in the galaxy via a special sky show, “One World, One Sky,” starring Big Bird and Elmo. Every Friday is Homegrown Solar Science, where families can build their own solar oven or window garden. And on Saturdays, local artists help you create a cosmic masterpiece using the sun, planets and moons as inspiration. Also, parents, practice your downward dog under the majestic sky in the Adler’s Grainger Sky Theater with Vinyasa Yoga for all skill levels on Saturday, April 5, at 8:30 a.m. (yoga cost is $12 and includes general admission to the museum).
