The Dr. and Mrs. Herbert J. Silverman PLANETARIUM
Due to the intimate nature of the planetarium presentation, guests must be seated in the planetarium before the show begins. The doors will close precisely at the advertised show time, and no late admittance is possible. Thank you for your understanding.

To help illustrate the planetarium shows, the MOST education staff members utilize a computer program entitled "Stellarium," a free open-source planetarium for your computer. It shows a realistic sky in 3D, just like what you see with the naked eye, binoculars, or a telescope. You can download the free software for home use at stellarium.org. Download our Stellarium First Time User Walk-Through: Stellarium Walk-Through for First Time Users.
The Planetarium is also available for special shows for groups of 20 or more. Link here for topics and contact information.
