Grand Openings

We’re kicking off the unveiling of the new planetarium with a series of public shows featuring Evan and Sutherland’s “Wonders of the Universe“. Look for an add in the Daily Journal, radio spots on Shine.FM, and some exciting additions to the planetarium’s exterior. Here’s the summer’s schedule for public shows:

Olivet Faculty and Staff Grand Opening:
Friday, July 11th– shows at 7 and 8 PM

Public Grand Opening:
Saturday, July 12th– shows at 6, 7:30, and 9 PM

If you miss the grand opening (or see it and want to come back and show your friends), we’ll have public shows on the following two Saturdays, July 19th and 26th at 6 and 7:30 PM.

All shows include a full-dome presentation of “Wonders of the Universe” as well as a live tour of the night sky featuring the capabilities of the new Digistar 3. Tickets are $3 per person. Seating is limited to 50 people per show and there are no reservations, so be sure to show up early! For more information, please call 815.939.5308.
