Willard Geer Planetarium

Bellevue Community College, 3000 Landerholm Circle Southeast
Bellevue, WA 98007


BC’s Willard Geer Planetarium is the only one located at a Washington State community college, and is the only planetarium in the state using an advanced, digital system to project and move images on the planetarium’ domed ceiling.

The 60-seat planetarium is almost constantly in use as a classroom for more than 1,400 BC astronomy students and 1,600 elementary and middle school students each year.

The planetarium is named in honor of Willard Geer, BC’s first physics instructor. Geer was a driving force in bringing the planetarium onto the BC campus.
