$49 for a Family Membership to the Clark Planetarium ($99 Value)

Telescopes changed the way people viewed stars, which were previously only thought to be useful for epic games of connect-the-dots. Have fun with the sky above with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a family membership to the Clark Planetarium (a $99 value). The family membership includes annual admission to the planetarium for up to five family members, as well as a number of benefits. Clark Planetarium harbors a wide range of interactive exhibits, including a digital scale that displays your weight on Jupiter, an asteroid, and other intergalactic worlds. One of the planetarium's newest exhibits, Science on a Sphere, employs a sphere six feet in diameter that displays an assortment of video sequences, such as plate tectonics, the Milky Way, and Earth at night. Exhibits showcasing re-creations of the moon and Mars can be enjoyed by the universally curious and aerospace engineers alike.

Membership to the Clark Planetarium includes free admission to documentary programming at the ATK IMAX Theatre, as well as the Hansen Dome Theatre, an immersive 360-degree digital-projection experience. In the dome theater, visitors can catch movies such as Extreme Planets and Attack of the Space Pirates, as well as cosmic light shows such as the classic Dark Side of the Moon. Members are also privy to discounts at the Fun Clark Planetarium Store, which stocks science kits, eco-friendly toys, and a plethora of stargazing accoutrements.
