Have you squinted in the sun and wondered what is really going on up there? Learn about the sun's surface, solar flares, sun spots and more during Solar Saturday at the Planetarium.
At Solar Saturday, you'll take a look at the sun, safely, through special scopes with the St. Louis Astronomical Society and staff from the Saint Louis Science Center, the Planetarium and other community partners. Weather permitting, you'll see a fantastic display of the sun's surface. Astronomy demonstrations will also take place in the Planetarium lobby.
Solar Saturday takes place at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium on January 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free.

Kids ages 3-5 can explore the fanciful world of Mother Goose and her friends through ballet at this free story time with dancing and movement.
Through story and song, the play shines a light on their dreams, their times with family and friends, and the trials and tribulations they faced as children living in a divided and segregationist city. A full chorus sets the tone with spirituals and anthems of the Civil Rights Movement such as "Amazing Grace," "Oh, Freedom," and "Woke Up This Morning." This production is a collaboration between The Black Rep and COCA.
