The Planetarium is open for the Fall 2021 semester! For everyone's safety, we will adhere to the KU campus guidelines, which follow state and CDC recommendations. As of August 9th, masks are required inside all university buildings for all individuals, regardless of vaccination status.
We are currently opening the planetarium to campus and community groups. Use this form to request a planetarium show for your group.
The Kutztown University Planetarium is located on the ground floor of the Grim Science Building and is labeled Room 100. The planetarium is used for introductory astronomy projects and for the university's Astronomy Outreach Program. The KU Planetarium features a full-dome digital projection system with surround sound and a full-color laser projection system.
In addition to Public Planetarium Shows and Special Events, local school groups and scouting troops frequently take field trips to the KU Planetarium.
All shows are followed by a question & answer period with KU's astrophysicist and planetarium director Dr. Phill Reed.
