Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium Goes Digital

The summer may be waning, but there’s still plenty to see in the Hoosier skies. Area residents of all ages are invited to come explore the universe and ever-changing face of our celestial wonders on Friday and Saturday evenings from 8 to 10:30 p.m. at the Holcomb Observatory & Planetarium, at Butler University.

The planetarium recently traded its analog projector for a 3-D digital projector that offers a more immersive, full-dome experience for weekend visitors attending planetarium shows. In addition to scheduled planetarium programs, sky-gazers are encouraged to check out the observatory as the sun sets and get an up-close look at the evening stars, planets, constellations and more.

For more than 60 years, visitors of all ages have explored the skies at the Holcomb Observatory and Planetarium. The observatory is well known for both its main telescope, a 38-inch Cassegrain reflector, and also several others, including the ninthlargest telescope in the Midwest.

Cost: $3 for children and students; $5 for adults for the planetarium show. Telescope viewing is free. Location: 4600 Sunset Ave. For more information, call 317-940-8333, email HolcombObservatory@Butler.edu or visit Butler.edu.
