dome_at_fairmont_jasper_park_lodgeInside the planetarium, some of the things your guide may share with you:

  • stunning views from around Jasper
  • local Aboriginal constellations
  • views of the Northern Lights from Jasper
  • a ‘trip into space’ orbiting above the Jasper Rockies…
  • and onward, to the edge of the universe…all in about 35-45 minutes (depending on how much audience-interaction there is)

There will be lots of opportunity for audience-participation so be sure to ask lots of questions and maybe even try a hands-on activity.
