December – holiday programs

The Star Theater will have special holiday programming throughout the month of December:

  • Star of Bethlehem

“The Star of Bethlehem” is a full dome planetarium show that takes participants back to the little town of Bethlehem where the birth of Jesus was announced to the humble shepherds by “a multitude of the heavenly host” and to the people of Israel by the arrival of the Wise Men. Guided by the light of the “star that they saw in the east” they traveled far from their lands to “come and worship him.” In the endeavor to investigate what this “Star” might have been, we present all the historical and scientific facts we have today in order to unravel this 2.000‐year old enigma in a special audiovisual show that fills the audience with a sense of wonder and an air of innocence. Accompanied by the music of the best known songs of the season the narration guides the audience through various historical and astronomical information along with the various facts concerning our calendar in order to guide viewers in making their own conclusions as to what this the star was all about.
 

  • Season of Light

“Season of Light” will help the audience enjoy a lovely display of the holiday season. In this show, the audience will not only learn the scientific reasoning behind why we have the different seasons, but  also will display some of the winter constellations that we can spot. "Season of Light" will provide audiences with a captivating illustration while also exploring some of the possibilities on how the renowned Star of Bethlehem. The show is narrated by National Public Radio's Noah Adams.
