Twinkling stars and colorful night skies dance on a dome painted with the light of Mississippi’s only Minolta Star projector during daily features inside the Russell C. Davis Planetarium. In a rotating schedule of sky shows, viewers follow an adventurous pursuit of St. Nick’s otherworldly captors with Aliens Who Stole Christmas, learn about the “Star of Bethlehem” and winter traditions with Season of Light, and discover phrases that confuse GPS devices in Fly me to the Moon. Groupon customers also receive 10% off a second show or a widescreen feature film, and, for a $1 fee, can nibble popcorn delivered right to their seat.

Russell C. Davis Planetarium

The Russell C. Davis Planetarium transports patrons from the bottom of the ocean to the farthest reaches of the galaxy in a massive domed theater. Shows often replicate the night sky on a hemispheric screen, exploring nearby stars and planets as they appeared when viewed from different locations on Earth at various points in history. School groups can tour the facility with a program guide to learn about astronomy, physical science, and the likelihood of their ancestors being exceptionally good-looking space aliens. Large-format films portray the vast extremes of land and sea in natural-science documentaries, whereas occasional laser-light concerts pair contemporary tunes with vibrant beams of light and color.

I love the planetarium. The facility is always clean and comfortable. I just wished that there were more of a variety of videos and the prices a little more afordable. I believe that the planetarium is an excellent source of education for children and adults!
