We now know of hundreds of planets orbiting nearby stars. Many of these planets are unlike anything we expected to find. Astronomers are on the verge of discovering planets like Earth. Come and learn how these discoveries are made and how we can search for life on these new worlds.

No tickets or reservations are required, but plan to arrive early for the best seats. The planetarium is located in the southeast corner of the lower level of the Cooper Science Complex (Room CP 90). Doors will open 30 minutes before show time. No one will be admitted after the program begins. Children 12 years and under should be accompanied by an adult. Programs are approximately 45 minutes long.

Due to construction projects on campus, the availability of parking near the planetarium is affected. View parking instructions.
