July 22, 2016 at Rochester Museum & Science Center in Rochester.


Rochester to Mission Control—the party of the summer is coming in for a landing at the Rochester Museum & Science Center. Rocket on over and join in a stellar bash full of space science and out-of-this-world entertainment taking place at the Museum, Strasenburgh Planetarium and outdoors.

• Enter a whole new galaxy with star and laser shows at the Strasenburgh Planetarium.

• Enjoy ethereal music among the stars performed by Eastman School of Music voice and classical guitar students.

• Climb the Planetarium tower to get lost in the cosmos while looking through our high-powered telescope. The evening’s feature—Saturn!

• Orbit the illuminated outdoor areas and listen to the music of live band Bold Acquaintance.

• Channel your inner grade-school student and place the planets in our solar system in order and then make your own mini planetarium to take home.

• Get a sneak peek at our fall exhibition, Elements of the Extreme, with “The Unseen Sun” and other cool interactive activities.

• Experience musical lightning in our Electricity Theater.

• See planets up close in Science On a Sphere.

• Taste from food trucks Cheesed and Confused, Le Petit Poutine and The Original Mac & Cheez (the moon is made of cheese, isn’t it?)

• Sip drinks from cash bars.

• Enter with a big bang in your spaced-themed costume (encouraged).
