    All Aboard! A Tour of the Planets



    Come to the Planetarium for a flight of fancy to explore our
    planetary neighbours. From hot little Mercury, closest planet
    to the Sun, past cloud-covered Venus, beautiful blue Earth
    and red Mars we head for the outer planets.

    Through the rocky reaches of the Asteroid Belt beyond Mars,
    we speed pass giant Jupiter, Saturn with its beautiful rings,
    blue-green Uranus and on to deep blue Neptune, last of the
    giant planets.

    Beyond lie the icy dwarfs of the Kuiper Belt - worlds like
    Pluto and Eris. Fasten your seat belts for the trip of a lifetime....
