It was great to learn about the stars, constellations and the North Lights. Amazing presentation with great stories.

Highlight of the night was seeing the craters on the moon - 100 times better than any picture I have seen.

Cannot wait to go the sun show and go to the glacier for sky watching.

Thank Lisa D

Peter the guide is very passionate and engaging and you can tell he loves teaching people about the solar system . The planetarium is a MUST DO when you are visiting Jasper !!!!

I got the pleasure of experiencing a "dress rehearsal" of the planetarium as a local. The entire experience is phenomenal! While the telescope viewing will be separate from the planetarium show come opening, it was a wonderful experience to get to look through a telescope and see the moon and its craters, we got to see Venus, as well as Jupiter. It was especially interesting to see them against a blue sky, as it was still light out, so it was a different view than at night. The planetarium show itself was very cool - a great mix of visuals, audio, and interactivity. Peter, the show guide, does a great job of explaining even the most complicated space facts. A small example of what the show had to offer was explaining differences in
