Space Dome Planetarium

Welcome to the Dayna and Ronald L. Sawyer Space Dome Planetarium, a unique planetarium experience that will send you and your students into orbit! This state-or-the-art planetarium utilizes a 16-million pixel laser projection system which is driven by the revolutionary planetarium software, Digistar3. Explore more of what the Space Dome Planetarium has to offer by clicking the links above.

Upon visiting the Space Dome…

  • We ask that you quietly arrive with your students in a single-file line outside the Space Dome’s main entrance on the 1st floor of the Space Center. If possible, arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled start time and wait for the Space Dome staff to assist you with seating.
  • We ask that everyone refrain from using devices that emit light and/or sound during the course of the program.
  • Questions related to the topic are strongly encouraged but may not be answered due to time constraints. You are welcome to contact the Space Dome staff via email, phone or Facebook as a follow-up
  • Please check with the Space Dome staff if you or anyone within your group wishes to record anything within the Space Dome.
  • Please be courteous and minimize any distractions.
  • Be sure to visit Sci-Port’s main Educator Resources  page for further general information about scheduling your visit to Sci-Port.
