Nova Nights: Shooting Stars

Enjoy drinks, a classic science fiction movie and a sky full of shooting stars at Date Night on August 9!

Bring your date and enjoy a romantic evening under the stars in the James S. McDonnell Planetarium as we explore the Perseids.

August is the peak of this year's Perseid meteor shower. Every year, astronomers, stargazers and romantics look to the August night sky to see "shooting stars" streak across the sky.
