Laser Shows Extended at LBL Planetarium
By WestKyStar Staff
GOLDEN POND, KY - Due to popular demand, the Laser Light Music Shows extended their run through December at the Golden Pond Planetarium in the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area.
During September and October, on Tuesdays and Saturdays, shows will run at 5:30pm and 7pm both days. In November and December, shows only run at 5:30pm on Saturdays through December 22, the Saturday before Christmas.
Laser Light Music Shows choreograph dazzling laser imagery on a 40-foot dome with music from the 60s to recent times. Shows include sounds from the Beatles, U2, Smashmouth’s "I’m a Believer", Pink Floyd’s "Dark Side of the Moon", and Blink 182’s "All the Small Things".
A frightful laser light show celebrates Halloween at the 7pm show on Tuesday, October 30. Come hear the music and see the choreographed laser lights strobe to Michael Jackson’s "Thriller", Bobby 'Boris' Pickett's "The Monster Mash", and "Attack of the Radioactive Hamsters" by Weird Al Yankovic. Make it a special date night for the whole family.

Admission price for Laser Light Music Shows is $6 per person. Doors open 30-minutes before, and close immediately at scheduled show time.

Join LBL after the planetarium shows for Star Parties on three more Saturdays this year–September 15 after the 7pm show and after the 5:30pm shows on November 17 and December 15. These evenings correspond to the new moon for best viewing. The observatory will be open and stargazers from the West Kentucky Amateur Astronomers will be explaining what you see in the night sky–moon, stars, and planets. The observatory programs are weather dependent, so it’s best to call 270-924-2237 to confirm it will be open.
