planetarium shows

BYU Astronomical Society

Weekly Public Planetarium Shows planetarium shows given by the BYU Astronomical Society are held most Friday nights.

The shows start promptly at 7 and 8 PM.  There is no late admittance. Because it gets very dark in the planetarium the shows may not be appropriate for some young children. Please keep in mind that it is difficult to leave once the show has begun.

After the shows, the observation deck on the roof will be open, weather permitting, with telescopes set up for the public to look through.

The Planetarium is located in room N465 on the 4th floor of the Eyring Science Center on BYU Campus in Provo, Utah.
