Show content engages the physical universe, while reflecting global fascination with the heavens above. Topics include the seasonal appearance of the sky and cover the attempts of humankind to understand the universe surrounding them from prehistoric megaliths aligned to the heavens to the latest gleanings from space technology about the structure and evolution of planets, stars, galaxies and the universe itself. Recent shows have included "Winter Wonderland" and "Celtic Mysteries."
