I have been visiting the Angelo State University Planetarium since grade school and have always found it an interesting adventure. Shows vary from month to month and may discuss anything from Super Volcanoes on our very own Planet Earth to dusty star clouds eons beyond our reach. Great for young scholars and adults alike!

My grandchildren came to visit and we went to a show at the Planetarium and they loved it. It was a learning experience as well. My daughter and I enjoyed it as well and we will go back!

We went to the ASU Planetarium in March of this year and saw the show on Saturn. First of all - they charge almost next to nothing - 2 dollars for military (I think!) and the show was great!

It's been a couple of years since I've been but I love their planetarium. Comfortable seats and the feeling of being their when they dim the lights. Great experience that more people in San Angelo should take advantage of.

It was so relaxing. Amazing to sit & look at the moon in the sky over ASU as it would appear over night.

Who knew that Angelo State University has this type of facility? Actually this is just one of the many treasures that ASU has to offer. Be sure to check out the entire university.
