365 Things to Do in Memphis #211: See the Skies at Sharpe Planetarium
You might not always be able to see the stars from the middle of the city, but they're always visible at Pink Palace. Assignment #211 in the 365 Things to Do in Memphis is to check out the constellations at the Sharpe Planetarium.
The Sharpe Planetarium has been open inside the Pink Palace Museum since 1979. Currently, there are about 15 public and school group shows in the planetarium every week and usually a few special private shows (the planetarium can be rented for the evening). The planetarium’s shows change about every three months, which keeps them seasonally appropriate – the constellations that are in the spring are different from the ones that appear in the fall.
