21+ Starry Nights

Sep. 26, 2014

Join Carnegie Science Center and the Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh as we look to the heavens for 21+ Starry Nights, a special evening of astronomy-themed events kicking off the celebration of Buhl Planetarium's 75 years.

Scale a 21-foot "zero" gravity climbing wall, explore a two-story walk-in replica of the International Space Station, try on a replica flight suit, and pose for a green screen photo anywhere in the galaxy. Weather permitting, the Science Center's rooftop observatory will be open for a chance to gaze through a telescope to see amazing celestial objects.

Check out Planetarium show "Back to the Moon for Good" about the quest for private companies – including one from Pittsburgh – to land on the moon. The Amateur Astronomers Association of Pittsburgh will be on site to answer questions and show off their breathtaking astronomical images.

The event features several live performances, ranging from an improv performance to a live science show about how astronauts' bodies work in space.

The event is the kickoff for this fall's celebration of the Buhl Planetarium's 75th anniversary. The evening will include a special Planetarium show commemorating Buhl's history. Henry Buhl Jr. (18481927) was a Pittsburgh philanthropist who established The Buhl Foundation "for the well-being of the citizens of Pittsburgh and the County of Allegheny." The foundation supports education, human services, youth programs, and economic development. It established Buhl Planetarium, the predecessor organization of Carnegie Science Center, in 1939.

As always, 21+ Night features music, cash bars, and the chance to experience four floors of hands-on exhibits with no kids!

Participants get a discount on Omnimax films and laser shows that evening.

The cost of the event is just $10 with advance registration before noon on the day of the event or $15 after noon at the door. Guests will receive a voucher for $15 in free slot play at the Rivers Casino when they arrive, while supplies last.
