Public Planetarium Shows - Columbia Basin College
The Community Enrichment Foundation Theater in the Bechtel National Planetarium uses the most advanced digital planetarium projection system in the Pacific Northwest to share the wonder of science, technology, and the universe. Our goal is to enrich education, research, and outreach in astronomy, physics, and many other sciences for communities in the lower Columbia Basin.
We are open to the public every Friday evening (shows at 7:00 and 8:00pm) and Saturday afternoon (shows at 2:00 and 3:00pm). Shows last about one hour and consist of a live presentation followed by a full-dome movie.
Current show schedule, movie descriptions, and more information can be found online at www.columbiabasin.edu/planetarium.
