Mueller Planetarium at the University of Nebraska State Museum has announced its summer schedule of shows presented in Nebraska's first fulldome digital projection theater.

The summer schedule, which started June 1, features National Geographic's "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure.” The show features an epic journey to the Late Cretaceous Period and explores 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.

The schedule June 1 through Aug. 14 (except July 4):
- Tuesday through Sunday, 2 p.m. - "Touching the Universe" (35 min.)
- Tuesday through Sunday, 3 p.m.; Thursday, 7 p.m. - "Sea Monsters: A Prehistoric Adventure" (40 min.)

The schedule is subject to change.
