J. Lockhart Planetarium
Lockhart Planetarium, in University College,
seats 60 people
inside its eight meter dome. The modest size of
the planetarium makes
it an excellent teaching facility ideally suited
in preparing first year
astronomy students for observing the night sky.
in the planetarium provide enrichment material
not only for these students
but also for students of other disciplines.
During any year, however, it is not
unusual to find 30 to 40 groups from outside the
visiting the planetarium, usually comprised of
people from mini-university
in summer, public schools in winter as well as
other community groups.
The shows, tailored to the individual group, are
interactive and presented
live by planetarium personnel.
