Come join us under the dome for a planetarium show at Wayne State University! We'll do some hands on demonstrations, give you an overview of the current night sky and follow up with a fulldome film. Our planetarium has a Spitz digital projector and seating for 60.
Shows are held on Fridays at 7pm and 8:30pm, except for March 16th.
Tickets: This term 2/3 of our tickets are available for reservation and 1/3 are available to walk-in guests at the door. You can reserve free tickets beginning at noon the Sunday before the show via Eventbrite here: eventbrite.com/e/wsu-public-planetarium-shows-winter-term-2018-tickets-41610785981
SATURDAY MORNING FAMILY SHOWS:
We have Young Astronomer shows on the second Saturday morning of each month. These shows are a bit shorter and cover topics that will engage our younger guests and their families. For more information on these shows click here: facebook.com/events/1199457483490915/
Interested in bringing a large group to the planetarium?
The planetarium can be reserved for private showings for school groups, scout troops, birthday parties or by other organizations for a fee. Please send us a private message for more information so we can help you design a show to meet your needs.
