Shows are on the second Saturday of every month: January 11, February 8, March 14, April 11, May 9, June 13, July 11. 

Join us for a free one-hour public planetarium show geared towards children under 10. Young Astronomer shows are held on the second Saturday of each month, excluding August.

Come to the WSU Planetarium and learn about the solar system, constellations and the current night sky. Shows include the full-dome movie Polaris, The Space Submarine and the Mystery of the Polar Night! Children may not be left at the show unsupervised.

40 seats are available on Eventbrite for no charge beginning at noon the Sunday before the show. Eventbrite seats get claimed quickly, but we always have 20 seats available first-come first-serve for walk-in guests. If you have reserved seats please arrive with your ticket at least 10 minutes prior to the show. We will release remaining open seats to the general public after this time.

We recommend arriving about 20 minutes before the show if you are a walk-in guest, to make sure you get a seat.
