The Planetarium is in dire need of some upgrades that will affect our ability to continue to offer shows to the public.
Your donation, no matter the size, can have a direct impact on Haile Planetarium continuing to be a free resource for our community.

Schneider Observatory Reopening
Join us on Saturday, October 20 as we celebrate the reopening of the Schneider Observatory by being part of NASA's International Observe the Moon Night. Observing the moon will only be one part of our evening. We have a moon craft for the first 100 people, and either a short talk about the moon, or an opportunity for you to control the planetarium to fly around the moon. We invite everyone to come out and explore the moon, planets, and other astronomical objects with our eight telescopes and feel closer to the stars! Plan to be here for an hour to get through the three stations. No reservations required.
What: Schneider Observatory Grand Reopening Event
When: October 20, 8-11 p.m.
