Planetarium at Mesa Community College
Mesa Community College invites the public to explore the amazing Universe in our state-of-the-art Planetarium!
MCC Astronomy Nights include FREE planetarium shows, telescope viewing, information tables, hands-on activities, and more! Planetarium shows occur rain or shine, but telescope viewing of the night sky is only offered when the sky is clear.
Planetarium shows run from 6:00-10:00 PM, with shows starting every 30 minutes. (A few shows last more than 30 minutes. In those cases, our planetarium shows run on a 45-minutes schedule.)
MCC Astronomy Nights are held on the first Friday of the month during February, March, April, & May and September, October, November, & December. Tickets to the planetarium shows are FREE to guests beginning at 5:30pm on Astronomy Nights or through online reservations. Free tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis at the ticket table at the planetarium entrance on Astronomy Nights beginning at 5:30 PM.
Advance tickets can be reserved online, for $3 each (see site for details)
Located in the Sonoran Desert, Mesa is surrounded by a rich, vibrant and verdant playground for sought-after outdoor recreation.
