Need a break from Earth? In this live, interactive journey through our Solar System, you'll head into space in search of another place like our planet. Using the same professional software that powers the Framingham State University Planetarium, one of our experienced educators will be your family's guide as we start at Earth and then head off towards the planet or moon of your choice! You and your family can choose their own adventure through polls and interactive chat, and they can join in guided discussions with educators and fellow participants.
