Carl Sagan Day

Planetarium celebrated it's first Carl Sagan Day on November 9th, 2014, what would have been Dr. Sagan's 80th birthday. It was such a positive experience that we have dedicated to continuing Carl Sagan Day annually. This is a day where all scientifically curious minds are welcome to the UAA Planetarium for a day of hands-on activities and free planetariums shows.
