The planetarium is a sky theater that can simulate the night sky at any place on Earth, at any time of the year.
Our free community programs explore topics such as constellation patterns, planets, galaxies, and black holes. Learn more about our public programs.
We are also happy to give groups of schoolchildren and others a simulation of a clear night far away from city lights. Learn more about school and group programs.
When’s the last time you looked at the night sky? Commissioned by WIPB-PBS Indiana, this two-time Emmy Award winning documentary does what we rarely do, look up! The film highlights the state's contributions to modern astronomy, discovers amateur astronomy in your neighbor's backyard, and showcases Ball State's new planetarium renovation.
For more information, contact our department or Ronald Kaitchuck, planetarium director.
