Clark Planetarium

Clark Planetarium

When was the last time you toured the Solar System? Have you ever witnessed the explosive death of a star or journeyed inside a living cell? You can when you visit Shawnee State University's Clark Planetarium!

Located inside the Advanced Technology Center, the Clark Planetarium is a large room with 66 seats under a huge dome projection screen. The key piece of equipment in the planetarium is the Digistar II Projection System. Digistar II is the only computer graphics planetarium projection system in the world. The Clark Planetarium is one of only 50 planetariums in the world that utilizes a Digistar projector. Not only does this system project a realistic view of the nighttime sky, it can also project three-dimensional images of buildings, spacecraft, and much more.
