The Longo Planetarium

Longo Planetarium 

We feature a variety of shows open to the public once a month.

All programs will begin with a live tour of the night sky given by our astronomer, Christopher Fenwick. The featured presentation will follow.

Public shows are $10 per person.

Reservations are STRONGLY recommended and can be purchased by clicking HERE or on the individual show links below.  Please note, however, that all ticket sales are final and cannot be refunded unless the show is cancelled.


All programs start promptly at the times indicated. Late entry will not be allowed into the dome, so make sure to arrive early, and plan for unexpected delays in travel and parking.

The LONGO PLANETARIUM at CCM is located in Cohen Hall, near the center of campus.
