SMC JOHN DRESCHER PLANETARIUM
Drescher Hall, 2nd Floor 434-3000
As a service to the community, Santa Monica College presents two highly popular astronomy shows on Friday evenings during the academic year in the SMC John Drescher Planetarium. The planetarium is equipped with a computer-driven optical projection system coupled with an audiovisual system, which provides the capabilities for multimedia presentations.
The Night Sky Show at 7 p.m. presents the wonders of the ever-changing night sky in an interactive 50-minute show updated weekly with the latest news in space exploration and astronomy. The Feature Show at 8 p.m. concentrates on a specific topic such as black holes or the quest for life beyond Earth, provides telescope viewing opportunities at various times of year, and brings guest experts to speak at the SMC campus.
Please visit the Planetarium’s webpage or call the planetarium for show dates and topics, ticket prices, or other information, or to arrange a special group presentation.
SPECIAL NOTE: Planetarium shows and lectures sell out quickly. Advance tickets may be purchased at the SMC Theatre Arts Box Office (SMC main campus) or by calling (310) 434-3000.
