"Celebrations for a Long Winter's Night."

The long cold winter nights of December are well suited for celebrations. Join us at the Hardin Planetarium, at 1501 State Street in Bowling Green, KY, for a bright and festive show which illuminates the meaning of the winter solstice, shares some history behind our holiday customs, and suggests possible explanations of the Christmas Star.

Tuesday and Thursday nights at 7 pm and Sunday afternoons at 2 pm from now through December 30th. We will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

Free of charge and suitable for all ages. The show will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted. 40 minute running time, with time for questions at the end of the presentation.


  • Starting Tuesday, November 27th, 2018, repeats every week on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday until Monday, December 31, 2018 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
