Were the Apollo visits to the moon actually a hoax? Have aliens landed on Earth? Can you tell your future by the stars? Prepare to debunk and tackle pseudoscience head-on with the new planetarium show Bad Astronomy: Myths and Misconceptions.

Based on the popular book and website of the same name, Bad Astronomy offers a unique and fun approach to learning about the cosmos. Join the "Bad Astronomer" Phil Plait as he takes a critical look at popular myths and misconceptions to show audiences how science can be used to evaluate questionable claims.

Created by the staff of the Dassault Systemes Planetarium and narrated by WJR-AM's radio personality Rachel Nevada, Bad Astronomy will interest both new and experienced astronomers of all ages as it examines bad science wherever it can be found.
