The theater hosts Friday night planetarium shows that are free to the public. Reservations are required and can be made at (304) 293-4961 or at jghopkins@mail.wvu.edu. Reservations cannot be accepted after 3:30 p.m. on the day of the show. The theater is located on the PL Floor of White Hall.

The WVU Observatory, equipped with a Celestron telescope, will be open for public viewing on the same evenings as the planetarium shows. The observatory does not require reservations, but the sky must be dark and clear.
