Journey to distant galaxies, explore the solar system and settle back in a comfortable seat in the Sharpe Planetarium as you take a cosmic voyage through the universe.

The Lida Gammill Sharpe Planetarium, a 130-seat theater-in-the-round, uses planetarium technology to project star fields, visual images and patterns on a domed ceiling.  Augmented by a superb sound system, the Planetarium programs are a treat for the eyes and ears.
