Mueller Planetarium at the University of Nebraska State Museum announces its summer schedule of shows presented in Nebraska's first fulldome digital projection theater. Beginning June 1, the schedule will feature National Geographic’s “Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.” Families will enjoy this epic journey to the Late Cretaceous Period where they will explore the mysterious, and often dangerous, ocean world of the past. The schedule also includes “Touching the Universe,” a showcase of amateur astrophotography of planets, galaxies, and nebulae on the 360-degree fulldome. All shows include an optional viewing of the current night sky, its stars, and constellations.

The schedule June 1 through Aug. 14 (except July 4):

Tuesday through Sunday at 2 p.m. - "Touching the Universe" (35 min.)

Tuesday through Sunday at 3 p.m.; Thursday at 7 p.m. - "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure" (40 min.)

The schedule is subject to change. For the current schedule and previews, visit the planetarium's website,
