ASU Planetarium Sign

The planetarium has had a few changes since COVID-19. The Angelo State University Planetarium will present 11 different full-dome public astronomy shows during its fall 2021 schedule beginning Monday, Aug. 30, in the Vincent Building at 2333 Vanderventer St.

The planetarium is where people come inside a dome and sit as a projector displaying images around the room to learn valuable information about stars, planets etc.  

The Planetarium shows will run on Mondays and Thursdays at 7 p.m. through Dec. 9, with breaks for the Labor Day and Thanksgiving holidays. All the shows are open to the public with admission prices of $3 for adults and $2 for children, active military and senior citizens. ASU students, faculty and staff are admitted free.
