Have aliens visited Earth? Will we make contact with extra terrestrials in our lifetime? Are we all alone in the Universe? These are the questions scientists and citizens alike want answered. This fall, Lourdes’ Appold Planetarium will explore all sides of these questions in its new show SETI - The Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence.

SETI delves into the world of extra terrestrial life and its possibilities from the planets we are finding around other stars, to the feasibility of traveling to the stars and what aliens might actually be like, to the possibility that UFOs have been visiting and the various methods that scientists are using to get in touch. This stunning show guides participants through the myriad of ideas to a surprising conclusion. SETI shows at 7:30 p.m. on the following Saturdays:
September 17 & 24

October 1, 15 & 22

November 12 & 19

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.
