Fall 2017 Schedule of Shows

Announcing our fall schedule of public planetarium shows! All are free and open to the public in our immersive, digital planetarium theater in Masters Hall on the Gettysburg College campus. We’ll start with “The Sky this Month” on September 4. In addition to a look at what’s up in September, this show will include a segment on Gettysburgians’ experience of the 2017 solar eclipse, from campus to the path of totality.

We are bringing back a weekday noon show, now on select Thursdays, to give college employees more of a chance to visit our renovated planetarium (though these show are open to the public too). While you can’t eat in the planetarium, our show length of about 40 minutes should give you time to get a quick bite afterward.

In addition to the posting below, the schedule is available as a PDF, and all public shows are published on the college’s events calendar.

See you at the planetarium!
