The Tomchin Planetarium & Observatory provides an excellent opportunity for community members to learn about astronomy and the natural wonders of the world. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
