We are participating in the White House Astronomy Night on the night of Monday, October 19, from 6-10pm. #AstronomyNight


We will have planetarium shows starting promptly at 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9m. Seating is limited so please plan to arrive early. We will also have (weather permitting) telescopes set up on campus in front of Reed Hall. Come by and take a look at the sky through our telescopes. Bring your cameras/phones to take pictures by simply putting the lens right again the telescope eyepieces. As always, everyone is invited to stop by for a few minutes, or even longer. 

The Radford University Planetarium features a 24-foot-diameter projection dome, an analog Goto-8 star projector, a Newtonian mirror projection system for our full-dome shows, and 32 permanent plus 14 free-standing seats. All shows are free and everyone is welcome.
