Earth from Space 

Welcome to the WVU Planetarium & Observatory.

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.

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