The secret is out!  Monday night, March 27th, join us for an Ex Fabula that is “Out of this World.” While our Secret Fabula events are usually members-only, we’re inviting everyone to a night under the stars. The evening includes light snacks, planetarium show, community building and fantastic stories from both planetarium staff and Ex Fabula guests alike.

This week we have two entertaining stories from women looking for new adventures - adventures full of interesting experiences and hilarious outcomes.
