UW Planetarium Open Nights – May 2015

Sorry for the late notice, but this month we’re having our shows on the second Friday instead of the first. It crept up on us a little faster than anticipated. Anyway! Enough for excuses. Get your tickets here for the second-to-last show of the 2014-15 year!


UW Planetarium Open Nights – Mar 2015

Next week’s planetarium shows are live! We’ll have some special guests as well, so get your seats here:



Shows Tonight!

Tonight! Planetarium shows! Our 7pm spot will be handled by guest star Katie Mack (@astrokatie)! She’s a cosmologist visiting for the AAS conference that took place this week. I’m sure she’ll have some interesting things to say. We still have space for the 8:30 spot, so if you’re not doing anything around then come on by!

Planetarium Shows and Happy 2015!

Back into the New Year! Happy 2015! We won’t be updating with a profile this or next week since all the astronomers are out and about at the American Astronomical Society’s 225th conference! However, we do have planetarium shows coming up on Friday (sorry for the short notice!). Here’s the links:

Thanks to all of those that came out to the planetarium show last night! It was a blast presenting for you and answering all of your many and varied questions. I hope that it was as much fun for you as well.

Hey all!

We’re back again with our second Open Night with the UW planetarium! This one will occur on November 7th, and again have two shows. The links for the two shows are here:


This next set of shows will focus on some of the notable constellations in the November sky, as well as the interesting objects (an entirely biased judgement call) embedded within. As always, bring your family, bring your friends, and most importantly, bring your questions!
