Do you look up at the night sky with wonder? Are you interested in finding a particular constellation? Do you contemplate the motion of the stars across our horizon? Are you curious about exoplanets and undiscovered worlds? Are you interested in black holes? The Spokane Falls Community College Planetarium may hold answers to your questions! A trip to our local planetarium is a memorable way to get people of all ages excited about science and the wonders of the universe.

Our state-of-the-art digital planetarium was designed as a virtual classroom into the universe for students of all ages. Since the spring of 2011, we have provided free K-12 field trips to local schools and educational groups, offered low-cost planetarium presentations to the general public, and are available for special event rentals.

The planetarium is a prominent feature on the SFCC campus. The cylindrical, domed room is one of the first recognizable features a driver sees coming over the crest of the hill from the Spokane River. Our vision for the planetarium includes promoting and serving science education in our community, expanding our local programming to schools and senior groups, and offering in-depth night sky and telescope viewing.
