Who knew mathematical fractals could be so fun?! Mark your calendars for the first Friday of every month as you sit back and enjoy a beautiful fractal show inside the full-dome planetarium ! “First Friday Fractal” is both visually stunning and informational but if you want to skip the educational show, we suggest getting tickets to “Fractals Rock” – the same beautiful fractals but with less talk and more music!
