Explore the beginning of time and the universe at Tidewater Community College’s planetarium on April 15.

“Time Space” chronicles the age of the dinosaurs, highlights Venus in the eyes of Mayan astronomers, continues on to walking with astronauts on the moon and jumps to a possible outpost 1,000 years in the future.

TCC’s planetarium is in the Science Building (Building J) on the college’s Virginia Beach Campus. Two shows will be presented at 7 and 8 p.m.

Admission is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. To reserve a seat for this show, please call the TCC Information Center at 822-1122 or register online. A limited number of standby tickets will be available at the planetarium on the day of the show. Arrive at least 15 minutes early to guarantee your reservation.

Children under 16 must be accompanied by an adult, and children under 4 are not admitted.

TCC’s planetarium has a state-of-the-art Digistar 5 Laser projector housed in a 40-foot dome with 81 permanent seats. It produces an all-sky image.

Parking is available in the lot closest to the Advanced Technology Center (Building H), which is next to the Science Building.
