Robert J. Lockhart Planetarium


  The 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. Other presentations
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 university community
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.
