This is the perfect age-appropriate introduction to the night sky for children ages 3 1/2 - 6.  One World, One Sky, Big Bird's Adventure is a full-dome show that follows Sesame Street's Big Bird and Elmo as they explore the night sky with Hu Hu Zhu, a Muppet from China.  Together they take an imaginary trip from Sesame Street to the Moon, where they discover how different it is from Earth.  One World, One Sky, Big Bird's Adventure aims to nurture a child's natural sense of wonder about the night sky while connecting kids across nations through a common bond in learning about he sky.

Admission:  $7, adults; $5, children, seniors, and UT community members (children 3 and under are free).  All shows are first come first served and reservations are not accepted.  Doors open 30 minutes before the show, during which time you can explore the displays in the lobby or try to answer the fun astronomy-themed quiz projected inside the dome.
