Planetarium

The A&M-Commerce Planetarium is located on the first floor of the McFarland Science Building. It is home to a Digistar 7 all-digital projection system in a 40-foot dome, providing amazing sights and sounds for audiences of all ages. The planetarium's 81 reclined seats immerse the audience in a space environment, filling their vision and appearing to take them beyond the confines of Earth.

The planetarium is open to the public for shows on Fridays
at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Call 903.468.8652 for a recording indicating shows for given dates.

Each show lasts about 50 minutes and begins with a live presentation of the current night sky where constellations, stars, and planets are shown.
