Public Viewing, 2012 Transit of Venus from Gettysburg College2012 Transit of Venus from Gettysburg College


The Hatter Planetarium offers both public and private group shows through the academic year (September to mid-May). Both are live talks by a presenter, and will also use the full-dome starfield and video capabilities of our new digital projector. Public shows include our long-running The Sky this Month series, which shows you what to look for from your backyard in the upcoming month as well as explaining recent astronomical news. These shows not only change from month to month, but we also cover different material from year to year as well, so regularly attending them is a great way to pick up a wide base of astronomy knowledge. New public and private shows will become available as we develop them for our updated facility.

We welcome private show requests from school and community groups! These are now handled via a web form.
