Bays Mountain is proud to announce their latest planetarium show creation, “Totality,” running now through August 20, 2017. “Totality” is a fascinating look at all the wonders of eclipses, especially total solar eclipses.

An eclipse is described as when one celestial object blocks another from view. The staff of the planetarium and exhibits departments at Bays Mountain produced this program. It examines what eclipses are, how and when they occur, and what wonderful sights they create. The program also looks back to a fascinating period in scientific discovery when general relativity was proven with the photographic recording of a total solar eclipse.

The planetarium show is followed by an update on the August 21, 2017 total solar eclipse and a brief tour of the current night sky.

The production includes a variety of wonderful styles – from spectacular space environments to humorous pop-up books. A very special part of the show relates, in a very human way, what happens when you are caught in the shadow of the Moon and the Sun is plunged into a total solar eclipse.

The show runs about 35 minutes in length. During May, the show is offered at 4:00 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. During the months of June-August, the show will be offered at 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, and at 1:00, 4:00 and 5:00 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
