The planetarium is located beside the main lobby of the science building. It is used for instruction in the astronomy courses and also for outreach shows created in collaboration with local school groups. The planetarium is run by students, faculty, and staff.


At this time, the physics and astronomy department does not offer regular public planetarium shows. If you would like to schedule a private show, please contact us at 207-786-6490. Our planetarium holds about 25 people, and our shows are free of charge.
