The Lueninghoener Planetarium opened its doors in 1965. It was designed by Dr. Gilbert Lueninghoener. He began the tradition of solid science education based programs. This tradition continues today. Groups are able to request programs on a variety of topics. Also, current astronomical events are often featured within the programs. The planetarium is utilized by Midland University students, school groups, scouts, church groups, and the general public. Midland University appreciated the contribution of the Walter and Ruby Behlen family. Almost forty years of Midland Astronomy students have been able to use the Behlen Observatory. The Behlen Observatory/Telescopes are also available for use by community groups. On average, two times per year the Observatory/Telescopes are open to the public.
