Louisiana Tech University's 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 Galaxy, including the sun, moon, planets, and approximately 3,000 visible stars thus giving a correct and realistic simulation of the celestial sphere.
