November 3 Show: Two Small Pieces of Glass - tells the story of the telescope through the eyes of two young people. The show highlights recent advancements in telescope technology and the astronomical discoveries these advances have produced.
Mesa Community College invites the public to explore the amazing Universe in our state-of-the-art Planetarium! Our Astronomy Nights are the first Friday of the month during the Spring and Fall semesters. Planetarium shows run from 6:00-10:00 PM, typically every 30 minutes. Tickets are FREE and available on a first come, first served basis.
During Astronomy Nights, we also offer telescope viewing of the Moon, planets, and other celestial sights. Unlike the planetarium shows, telescope viewing will only occur if the skies are clear. The line starts 10 minutes before show time.
