On Nov. 9, Space Center Houston officials hosted a VIP event for Galaxy Lights, the museum’s annual holiday event. Galaxy Lights features indoor and outdoor holiday light displays, including a series of lit spheres suspended from the ceiling that change color and move along to music.

The event features miles and miles of lights and thousands and thousands of strands and takes several months to set up, said Keesha Bullock, Space Center Houston’s chief communications and marketing officer.

Additionally, Galaxy Lights visitors will be able to interact with exhibits and hands-on activities, according to a Space Center Houston news release.

What they’re saying

“Galaxy Lights is an opportunity to celebrate the holiday season in a unique and educational way,” President and CEO William Harris said in the release. “We’re excited to once again invite visitors to join us in exploring the wonders of the cosmos while enjoying the magic of the holidays.”
