Scobee Planetarium

Students and scouts will enjoy a trip to the stars at the Scobee Planetarium. The Scobee Planetarium within the Scobee Education Center reopened on January 22, 2016 with the addition of the new Digistar 5 projection system. Learn about the sky tonight, or robot explorers. Witness one of nature’s most magnificent displays – the Northern Lights. For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky.  This immersive presentation shares the science behind the aurora and tells the magnificent display.
