Angelo State Introduces Revamped Schedule for Planetarium Shows

August 29, 2019

The Angelo State University Planetarium will present 10 different full-dome public astronomy shows during its fall 2019 schedule beginning Thursday, Sept. 5, in the Vincent Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.


The Planetarium shows will run every Thursday at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. through Nov. 14, except for Oct. 10. Rather than the previous practice of presenting the same two shows throughout the fall schedule, two different shows will be presented each Thursday for the first five weeks. Then, following the Oct. 10 open date, the schedule will repeat with the shows trading start times. The new schedule is designed to give viewers the opportunity to see a larger variety of shows each semester.

All the shows are open to the public with admission prices of $3 for adults and $2 for children, active military and senior citizens. ASU students, faculty and staff are admitted free. Details about the content of the shows are available at angelo.edu/planetarium and on Facebook at facebook.com/AngeloStatePlanetarium.
