Season of Light

Things to do in Tucson during holidays. Christmas in Tucson. Flandrau planetarium shows in Tucson.

Our annual family favorite Season of Light will fill you with seasonal sparkle! Updated for our FullDome projection system, so the imagery covers the entire planetarium dome, the holiday classic “Season of Light” traces the many festivals of light, across times and cultures, that celebrate the spirit of renewal around the Winter Solstice. During this time of year in the Northern Hemisphere, the days grow shorter and the nights grow longer and colder. It is season when people across nations and cultures celebrate with lights in the spirit of blessing and renewal, from Christmas to Hanukkah to ancient Hopi and Roman festivals of lights. This is the sweeping story told in “Season of Light,” a warm reminder of our common humanity for this season of giving and family gatherings.
