GCC Planetarium

A Conversation with the Stars

"A Conversation with the Stars" is the GCC Planetarium's monthly lecture series.  Each evening features a professional astronomer speaking about their area of expertise.  New this year for the lecture series will be student musicians, artists and authors, all showcasing their talents.  

As always, after the talk, telescopes will be available through which the (admittedly limited) celestial sites of the Glendale sky can be observed in more detail.  Light refreshments will also be served, after the talk.

The evening conversations are free, but because seating in the planetarium is limited, reservations are required. Please visit Brown Paper Tickets to reserve your seat.

We look forward to seeing you in the dome
