The planetarium will feature shows for the remainder of the spring semester, including an Easter special feature.

Wayne State’s Fred G. Dale Planetarium has reopened for public planetarium shows and laser shows after a brief closure. The planetarium regularly features shows about exciting astronomical topics, followed by a laser show where you can enjoy the lights and a variety of musical genres, including country, classic rock, and Pink Floyd, among others.  
Additionally, the planetarium will be celebrating the Easter holiday with multiple showings of The Sistine Chapel planetarium show beginning April 7. After a short history of the chapel, enjoy a detailed explanation of all of Michelangelo's works, including the Creation of Adam, the stories of Noah, Moses, and Jesus, and the Last Judgment.

Please visit www.wsc.edu/planetarium to see the full schedule of planetarium and laser shows, and to learn how to book your own private show. Suggested donation for daily shows is $3 for children and $5 for adults.
