The planetarium dome is an immersive video space. No longer restricted to an earthbound view of the sky, we can take you on a journey from the bottom of the sea to the edge of the universe! When we do want to see the night sky above New Jersey, our fiber-optic star projector provides a beautiful, crisp view. Check back for the latest information, special events, and how you can become a part of our universe.
