We will have hands-on activities, dome demos, a telescope workshop and, weather permitting, observing on our rooftop observation deck.

Delta’s planetarium contains one of the world’s most advanced digital theater systems.
In 1993, Delta College secured a grant from NASA totaling $8.75 million to fund the design and construction of the Planetarium.
The exterior “cone” shape of the Planetarium theater represents a rocket exhaust nozzle.
