Black Line Louisiana Tech University Planetarium



Welcome to the Louisiana Tech University Planetarium

Since the Louisiana Tech University Planetarium was built in 1967, there have been several remodeling phases that have updated the facility to a state-of-the-art center. Comfortably seating 120 people, the climate controlled Planetarium has a dome of 40 feet in diameter. A Spitz A-4 instrument projects the Milky Way Glaaxy, including the sun, moon, planets, and approximately 3,000 visible stars thus giving a correct and realistic simulation of the celestial sphere.


The Planetarium main theatre is handicapped accessible and has spaces for several wheelchairs.


We look forward to your scheduling a visit to the Louisiana Tech University Planetarium.
