Bassett Planetarium Located in Morgan Hall
For more than fifty years the Bassett Planetarium has served school groups in the valley with programs on the night sky. The instrument is a Spitz A3p optical projector with seats for 60 under a 9.1 meter dome. The Bassett Planetarium presentations are primarily concerned with learning to identify the evening constellations and to explore some mythologies that gave rise to the constellation names. Mechanics and structure of the solar system and the universe can be explored as well.
The Bassett Planetarium is open to community and school educational groups by appointment only. Please note that the Planetarium is not handicap accessible. Visits are free. "Scheduling a Group Visit"
