The Texas A&M University-Commerce is proud to announce the opening of its state-of-the-art planetarium. The planetarium has a 40-foot dome and a Digistar 5 all-digital projection system which fills the dome with sights and sounds beyond imagination. The planetarium's 87 reclined seats immerse the audience in a space environment, filling their vision and appearing to take them beyond the confines of Earth.
The planetarium is open to the public on Fridays
at 7 & 8pm. Call 903-468-8652 for a recording specifying shows for given dates. Each show lasts about 45 minutes and begins with a live presentation of the current night sky where constellations, stars, and planets are shown.
