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:

♦ Beginning Saturday March 14th, the WVU Planetarium will follow the lead of the university and 
WV Governor's "stay-at-home" message to help mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and 
suspend all field trips, private shows, and public shows
All events scheduled between March 14th and May 8th are cancelled. 
We are unsure when we will be able to hold shows again, but we are following the university's lead at this time. 
We are currently NOT taking any more reservations for ANY events. 
♦ We are taking these precautionary steps to protect the public, children, and our staff in these dire times. 
Thank you for your understanding and we hope to back up and running very soon!
