Date Night Under the Stars

August 19, 2017

On August 19, 2017 grab your sweetheart, grab you friends, and get ready to enjoy a date night under the stars of the James S. McDonnell Planetarium to learn all about the upcoming Great American Total Solar Eclipse happening just two days later!

Your evening will include a live Planetarium show, a special showing under the stars of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, snacks and a cash bar.

The Sun is our most important star, and on August 21, 2017, the Moon, the Earth and our day star will be in a syzygy that the St. Louis area hasn’t seen since 1442!

Come learn what syzygy is (besides a great Scrabble word), how you can safely view the eclipse, why it happens, and why you want to be in the dark on August 21, 2017. Then continue your date night by joining us for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade!
