About the Planetarium

Our 60-seat planetarium is a large, round room with a 24-foot giant dome where the sky (sun, moon, stars, planets, etc.) is projected.

Recently, we have upgraded from an Analog Spitz Projector (pictured above left) to a digital ePlanetarium Discovery Dome (pictured above right). We may now project full dome videos and take star exploration to the next level!

Take up close trips to planets, nebula, and other celestial phenomena. Daily shows automatically update for 8:40 pm each night, stargazing nights are set to update by the minute.

The planetarium doubles as a screen for movie nights. Planetarium shows, held daily, are subject to change periodically.
