About Us:

 

The St. Petersburg College Planetarium and Observatory are great places for all ages to explore the universe. The planetarium is a “star theater” with a 24-foot domed ceiling that can accurately simulate the night sky at any time or location on Earth.

Free shows are held every Friday night at 7 p.m. and 8:15 p.m. when the college is in session. The planetarium is also available free of charge to clubs, school groups and other community organizations by special request.

The St. Petersburg/Gibbs campus is also home to a rooftop observatory, featuring a 20-inch reflecting telescope that is open to students and the public after planetarium shows. Additional telescopes are available on our spacious third floor observation deck. Special telescopes equipped with solar filters allow daytime visitors to safely view sunspots, prominences and other solar activity.
