Public Shows

The Planetarium will be closed and all events canceled through the month of April. Astronomy Day is postponed with a new date TBD. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and hope you can understand our decision to help keep our community safe and healthy. Updates will be posted on our social media pages and website.

Planetarium shows are fun and exciting for people of all ages!

We combine star shows with immersive cosmic tours and films to provide hour long shows.

Using the Spitz A3P Star Machine, you can see the stars as they look under the night sky. With our projector and Uniview software providing a digital map of the universe, we can take visitors on a tour of the cosmos.

Wednesday at 7p: A variety of show topics, created by planetarium student staff. That is why we can offer these for free.

Friday at 7p: Tours through the universe using our digital system.

Saturday at 2p: An immersive film intended for families with younger children.

Saturday at 7p: An immersive film intended for the general public. 

All shows include a tour of the night sky.
