  • Despite renovations the observatory still holds little stargazing meetings (Wednesday's 7-10pm when the college is open) it's definitely worth checking out on a clear evening! All the volunteers and s...  more »

  • I have been here twice, once 25 years ago, and once on a date with my wife last weekend. For some reason, it was way cooler 25 years ago ;). Buehler Planetarium has different shows at different times and date, so call ahead. Cash only entry for the 1 hour show (on the night and show we went $5/person). The show we saw was about Hubble. I am a big fan of the space sciences and must say, every one that saw the show agreed it was boring (except for the last 60 seconds). Four people were sleeping when the lights came on. It was mostly a slide show with little excitement and too many obscure factual details that went into unnecessarily long descriptions. The star projector wasn't even turned on once the entire time. There are about a dozen home made youtube videos about Hubble that are much better. Since it was Saturday, after the show, we walked outside to the observatory where they had about 6 nice telescopes set up. Now that was cool! We spent about 20 min looking at the planets and even saw Saturn's rings and 4 of it's moons. We will be back again for the free observatory, but sadly, not going back to the planetarium until I get reviews of the show first.
  • they're open Wed, Fri and Sat night. Informative and enjoyable. thanks
