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 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.

This presentation will also include a live tour of your winter night sky, from the warm comfort of your planetarium seat. We’ll look at everything you can see with your eyes, before diving into the invisible universe of dark matter.

Ram Night Information

  • The entrance to the FSU Planetarium is located in the O’Connor Parking Lot. The planetarium can also be accessed through the basement level of O’Connor Hall (glass door across from room G18).
  • There is no cost to attend Ram Nights at the Planetarium, but admission is limited to FSU students only. Be prepared to show your student ID for admission.
  • We are always seeking volunteers to assist at Ram Nights and other planetarium events. Very minimal commitment, but great opportunity. Reliable volunteers have the opportunity to learn to operate planetarium equipment and present shows on their own. Contact cmc@framingham.edu if you are interested in becoming a volunteer.
