Planetarium and Observatory Shows

Planetarium shows begin at 6:00, 7:00, 8:00 and 9:00 pm on Friday evenings and seating is limited to 47 per show.  Families with children are welcome to attend the early show at 6:00 pm.  Admission is strictly on a “first come, first served” basis:  reservations for all shows presented on a given night will be taken beginning at 5:30 pm that evening in front of the planetarium.  Advance reservations are not available.

Our shows are suitable for ages five and up.  The planetarium is located in NH 3004 on the third floor of Nevins Hall.  If weather permits, the rooftop Observatory will be open for public viewing after each show.  For further information please contact the Department of Physics, Astronomy, Geosciences and Engineering Technology (PAGET) at (229) 333-5752.
