Bryan-Gooding Planetarium

The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium, one of the largest single-lens planetariums in the United States, uses cutting edge technology to bring the night skies to life and entertain visitors of all ages.

Programs are immersive productions about deep space exploration, our dynamic planet and the human experience connecting it all.

Daily live presentations are led by knowledgeable planetarium Educators piloting MOSH’s digital projection system.

THE BRYAN-GOODING PLANETARIUM IS OPEN!

Cosmic Concerts are resuming in August! Show playlists and ticket links can be found below in the Cosmic Concerts section.

Planetarium Night Live! is also resuming in August! Show descriptions can be found below in the Planetarium Night Live! section. Ticket links will be available soon.

Tickets for daily Planetarium shows are $5 each for the public and no charge for MOSH Members. Tickets and member reservations are only available at the front desk during your visit.

Due to Museum-wide safeguards against the spread of COVID-19, we are limiting Planetarium shows to 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Mondays through Fridays, 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Saturdays and 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. on Sundays. All time slots will show the same program throughout the week, and the weekly program will change every Monday. The upcoming schedule is as follows:

  • July 13 – July 19 — Dynamic Earth
    Explores the inner workings of Earth’s climate system. This program follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere.

  • July 20 – July 26 — Astronaut
    The exploration of space is humankind’s greatest endeavor. Go on an incredible voyage to discover what it takes to be an astronaut as you experience a rocket launch from inside the human body. Learn about the hazards of space exploration through “Chad,” our test astronaut.

  • July 27 – August 2 — Oasis in Space
    Embark on a startling and beautiful voyage through the universe as you visit planets in search of water, a key ingredient for life on Earth.

  • August 3 – August 9 — Two Small Pieces of Glass
    Trace the history of the telescope from Galileo’s modifications to a child’s spyglass — using two small pieces of glass — to NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope.

In addition to limiting our showtimes, we are limiting our capacity in the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium to maintain social distancing. The maximum audience size will be 100 guests and Planetarium staff will seat all guests/groups apart to observe social distancing. Facemasks are to be worn at all times. Also, the Planetarium will be regularly cleaned and disinfected according to CDC guidelines.

Join us on August 21, 2020 at 7 p.m. as Planetarium Night Live! presents “Thirteen Point Eight.” The age of the Universe is 13.8 billion years old. Seems like an amazing claim; then again humans are capable of amazing things. How can we know something like this so precisely? What’s the evidence leading us to this number? Is it as solid a result as it’s made out to be? Join us in the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium to investigate one of the most astounding claims humans have ever made about anything.

Suggested for ages 13 and up.

$5 for Museum Members  |  $10 non-members

10.16.20 | 7 — 8:30 p.m.

Join us on October 16, 2020 at 7 p.m. as Planetarium Night Live! presents “Monsters in Space.” Forget what might be lurking in your closet, open the door to what lurks in space. There are truly fearsome leviathans that could keep even the most courageous of us up at night. Explore life ending impactors, planet-vaporizing explosions, and other haunting objects hiding in the dark of space.

Suggested for ages 13 and up.

Join us on December 18, 2020 at 7 p.m. as Planetarium Night Live! presents “Left Out In the Cold.” From Earth to the far-out depths of space, there are places where cold dominates. Sometimes the cold is devastating and other times it is essential for creation. Bundle up with us as we examine the crucial role of cold in the forgotten spaces in our universe.

Suggested for ages 13 and up.

ABOVE AND BEYOND...

“Above and Beyond…” is a 90 second “shortcast” that brings the universe to you. Aired on WJCT every Friday and Sunday during the nationally syndicated radio programs Science Friday and Radio Lab, “Above and Beyond…” is the product of a partnership between the Bryan-Gooding Planetarium at MOSH and “The Science Of…,” a video and radio production unit from out of Jacksonville University. Find “The Science Of…” linked below.

“Above and Beyond…” topics range from those that can be observed with your own eyes in the night sky over Northeast Florida, to the most distant cosmic objects observed by the most sophisticated telescopes ever built anywhere. Many (but not all) of the concepts brought to life in “Above and Beyond…” are about objects or events specific to a one-time cosmic event or a particular time of year. All of them are produced to be fun and add to a wider understanding of the universe we inhabit. Please browse through the “Above and Beyond…” archives here to binge on the cosmos, 90 seconds at a time.
