Snow College Planetarium

About the Planetarium

The Graham Science Center at Snow College houses the only permanent fixed-dome planetarium in Utah south of Provo. The Natural Science and Mathematics Division at the College operates the planetarium. The planetarium is a Digistar system manufactured by Evans & Sutherland in Salt Lake City. The planetarium is small (it seats only 25 adults -- 15 during the pandemic), but it is of the highest quality. The planetarium is used for astronomy classes and other college groups. School groups of all ages, community groups, church groups, youth groups, and family groups are also welcome to schedule private shows. Additionally, free Public shows are offered many evenings.
