Description 

Each year the Barlow Planetarium celebrates Astronomy Day by offering our field trip programs to the general public at the same field trip prices schools enjoy. Approximately 25,000 school children visit the Barlow each school year - Solar System Exploration is one of the Barlow's most popular field trip programs. Solar System Exploration is designed for upper elementary students 5 and visits each of the 8 planets in our solar system, many of the fascinating moons, the dwarf planets, and, of course, our Sun. Each show concludes with a tour of the current nighttime sky – stars, constellations and planets – as seen from the Fox Valley and Northeast Wisconsin.
