BRADENTON, Fla. - There's a Bay Area museum that can take visitors millions of miles -- in fact -- light years away. Believe it or not, it can be done in one tank of gas. The Bishop Planetarium in Bradenton offers an out-of-this-world experience.
Humans are learning more and more about the universe every day. Science has brought us so close to landing on Mars, and the closest to the sun we have ever been. At the Bishop Planetarium, visitors can get a close up view of the entire universe without ever leaving our seats.
The planetarium has several daily shows including one where visitors virtually fly through the entire universe and come close to many celestial objects. In addition to that, they have live exhibits including a meteorite -- that is millions of year old -- which visitors can actually touch.
A new addition to the planetarium is an actual moon rock which was discovered here on Earth. What else is great is that the Bishop Planetarium, is nicely tucked into the South Florida Museum, which means when you come back to Earth there are tons of other things to see and do.
