Starting in Fall 2017, we are offering a series of evening planetarium programs just for FSU students! This effort is part of campus-wide commitment to provide students with access to quality entertainment and cultural events on campus. Ram Night events in the planetarium will be offered free of charge, but students must show a valid FSU ID for entry. Space in the planetarium is limited to the first 60 arrivals at each event. FSU students are of course also welcome to attend any of our public events, or to schedule private planetarium events for clubs or organizations.

Are we alone in the universe? The first step in answering this important question is determining where in the universe other life might exist. In recent times, that search has turned to exoplanets: planets orbiting stars other than our sun.
Join us in the FSU planetarium for a special screening of Undiscovered Worlds, just for FSU students! This visually stunning fulldome film, produced by the Charles Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Science Boston, will introduce you to the growing field of exoplanet exploration and the scientists unlocking the secrets of these strange new worlds. Plus, you’ll get a live tour of your September night sky with planetarium educator Mary MacDonald.

Are you afraid of the dark?
Last year, many of your FSU classmates joined us for the wildly popular premier screening of Phantom of the Universe. This new fulldome film, produced in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and CERN, home of the Large Hadron Collider, will introduce you to one of the most intriguing concepts in current physics research: dark matter. What is this mysterious, invisible substance that seems to make up most of our universe? Find out at the FSU Planetarium.
We’ll also keep you in the dark for a SPOOKY tour of the sinister sky at night. We all know that when night falls, the monsters and demons come out to play – even in the stars! Costumes are encouraged for this night of dark and spooky science.
This event is presented in collaboration with the FSU Pre-Engineering Club. The Pre-Engineering Club will be offering refreshments before the show in O’Connor Hall Rm. G18 at 6:30pm, while supplies last.
