about Fiske Planetarium:
Fiske Planetarium, at the University of Colorado at Boulder main campus, offers family shows and public shows nearly every week of the year. Explore hands-on exhibits in Fiske's lobby and with Science on a Sphere, and feel like an astronaut floating above Earth. Lobby admission is always free.
During the summer, family shows are at 10am and 1pm every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. In the fall and spring, family shows are every Saturday afternoon (when there are no CU Football games). Seasonal schedules are available at www.fiske.colorado.edu or for more info, call 303.492.5002. Summer camp programs are also offered.
Sommers-Bausch Observatory, also operated by the Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences Department, is adjacent to Fiske and offers public telescope viewing (weather permitting) on most Friday evenings during the academic year. The Science Discovery Program, now at a new location in RL-2 (30th and Marine Street), offers many related classes for children throughout the year.
