Visit the Charles W. Brown Planetarium at Ball State University and experience the night sky as you have never seen it before.
The planetarium, which is part of the Department of Physics and Astronomy, is an immersive theater where state-of-the-art technology transforms the 52-foot dome into a simulation of the night sky as seen from Earth and from space. For example, the audience can “fly” through Saturn’s rings, land on Mars, or travel to distant stars and galaxies.
More than 150 reclining seats allow guests to comfortably view projections from our GOTO CHRONOS II Hybrid, which includes an RSA Cosmos digital 4K system to display amazing visualizations based on real scientific data.
Open for free educational public programs and group tours, the Brown Planetarium reflects Ball State University’s commitment to service through educational engagement with the community.
