Earth from Space 

Welcome to the WVU Planetarium

For more than 30 years, the planetarium at West Virginia University has given Morgantown and the surrounding communities a 
glimpse into worlds beyond our own. Sitting atop White Hall, the planetarium has served thousands of people each year, including 
hundreds of WVU students.

Upcoming Events:

♦ On October 26th, during our children's show, we will be celebrating Halloween a bit early with a special
intro about some spooky-looking deep sky objects before Accidental Astronauts!

♦ On November 15th, we will be partnering with the WVU Robotics Team to put on a special joint event. We will feature a 
new intro about Mars and the team will have a table with their robot!

♦ Weather permitting, we will open the rooftop observatory for telescope viewing following the shows.

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at, call us at 304-293-4961, or send us a message on Facebook!


Our mission is to serve the state-wide West Virginia community by connecting people to the universe.
