Visit the Edelman Planetarium for free showings of Stars: The Powerhouses of the Universe.

Every star has a story. Some are as old as time, faint and almost forgotten. Others burn bright and end their lives in powerful explosions. New stars are created every day, born of vast clouds of gas and dust. Through every phase of their existence, stars release the energy that powers the Universe. Journey to the furthest reaches of our galaxy and experience both the awesome beauty and destructive power of STARS.  Suitable for audiences of all ages, this dramatic program features narration by Mark Hamill and stunning 3D animation by NSC creative at the National Space Centre in Leicester, UK.

This free immersive planetarium show will be played at 7:30 and 8:00 pm.


Night Sky Viewing

Guests are encouraged to head to the rooftop observatory for views of the night sky through our telescopes.  Faculty and members of the student-run Astronomy Club will be present to operate the telescopes and assist in helping guests enjoy the night sky.
