This January, the Lourdes University Appold Planetarium is bringing back BIG – a fulldome show that takes a quirky and imaginative look at the size and scale of our universe.

January 12
January 26
February 9
February 23

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.
