In ancient Roman times, they honoured the deity Saturn with a celebration called Saturnalia and Vancouver’s H.R. MacMillan Space Centre is celebrating the end of the incredible 20 year Cassini mission to Saturn by hosting another one of their adults-only Cosmic Nights!
Cosmic Nights: Saturnalia at the Space Centre
Where: H.R. MacMillan Space Centre (1100 Chestnut St, Vancouver)
When: Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 6:30pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: Purchase your tickets for the planetarium shows here »
Starting at 6:30pm, guests can enjoy drinks, music, games, and demonstrations in the planetarium. Starting at 7:30pm and 9:00pm there will be a planetarium show: Journey to Saturn.
Twenty years ago the Cassini spacecraft left Earth on its journey to the ringed planet. In this live planetarium show, they’ll take you on Cassini’s journey to Saturn, and all of the stops it made along the way, including the extensive moon system where we found Enceladus and Titan. Over the course of those twenty years, Cassini has made some incredible discoveries which they’ll showcase in this beautiful planetarium journey.
To round out the night, Dr. Aaron Boley will give a lecture on Saturn at 8:00pm. Follow the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre on Facebook and Twitter for more updates on #cosmicnights.
