The William R. Luebke Planetarium is an instrumental learning environment within the Science Community Center. Students studying astronomy utilize the planetarium as a learning laboratory traveling from planet to planet within our solar system and beyond. Such a tool allows one to experience the universe in a way far superior to what images in a textbook can convey. Other classes, such as Earth Science, Geology, Physics, Life Sciences, and the Humanities also visit the planetarium to bring a context to their learning that goes far beyond the classroom.
The planetarium itself consists of a Zeiss Skymaster ZKP-4 LED/fiber-optic star projector coupled with the Zeiss Velvet Projection System. Together, these top-of-the-line projection instruments display unparalleled images of the night sky and full-dome planetarium films onto a 40-foot suspended dome ceiling for an audience of up to 100 people.
The Planetarium is available for reservation by groups. Please visit the GVM Tours page for more information and requirements.
