Centennial of the Planetarium

Event Description

The event time is TBA.

Join us in the Lohman Planetarium to celebrate the anniversary of the first ever planetarium. Unveiled to the public exactly 100 years ago in 1923 in Jena, Germany, the world’s first star projector brought the sky down to Earth. Our festivities will include a live stream from Germany and planetariums around the world, as well as a guided tour of the Minolta Optomechanical MS-10 analog star projector from the previous MOAS planetarium by Curator of Science Seth Mayo. Please check back for times and details as we get closer to the event.

Free for members or with paid museum admission.
