Chesapeake Planetarium

Experience the solar system at Chesapeake Planetarium’s Sky Theater. Using the Spitz projection dome, the planetarium gives groups a look at the natural changes and celestial events that occur in the skies. From auroras to lightning, your group will be amazed as they watch the projector’s special effects roll across the planetarium ceiling. Programs for groups in grades 1-6 include tours of the solar system and focus on topics such as weather, geology, lunar eclipses, the evolution of stars, and more. Planetarium programs for groups in other grade levels are also available.
