Radford University Planetarium presents "September Skies" every Tuesday and Thursday evening starting at 7:00 pm in September.

The nights are getting colder and clearer! Join us as we see what's up in the night sky this fall season, including the stars, constellations, and planets. We will then take off from Earth and fly around the universe, starting with our solar system and working our way out. In the end, we may even take a "Journey to the Center of the Milky Way"!

Admission is free and all are welcome.

All shows start with a tour of the nighttime sky as well as some other amazing sights in space using our full-dome Digistar 5 projection system. Many of these are following by a professionally produced dull-dome multimedia shows on various exciting astronomical topics.

The Radford University Planetarium is located in the Center for the Sciences room M75 (Main Street level). Enter through the doors from Parking Lot C.

Free parking is available in Parking Lots C and B (next to the planetarium) after 6:00 pm on weekdays and all day on weekends.

Note: No food or drink is allowed inside the planetarium.

The planetarium has a maximum of 55 spectators. If the number of visitors reaches the limit of 55, then we will have a sign outside the entry door telling people that we are full and can no longer admit anyone.
