Join UM’s Department of Physics and Astronomy for public planetarium shows on Friday evenings this spring semester. During each public program we will take you on a tour of the current night skies of Missoula, pointing out noteworthy objects, constellations, planets, or upcoming events visible in the night sky. The show will then shift to an engaging topic chosen by that evening’s presenter.
Shows are on Friday evenings from 6 to 7 p.m. or 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. UM’s planetarium is housed in the Star Gazing Room in the basement of the Payne Family Native American Center. Attendees should plan to arrive 10 minutes before the beginning of the show to check in. The planetarium entrance will be locked after the show begins.
Tickets are $6 (adults) and $4 (children 12 and under). Shows often sell out in advance. Purchase tickets using the links found beneath each show date. Tickets are not sold at the door. If you encounter issues with the ticketing website try changing your browser to Chrome or Safari.
