The Planetarium is closed temporarily—but our programs continue

The Planetarium may be closed during construction, and we may all be hiding from the coronavirus, but the Friends of Arlington’s Planetarium are still here for you.

During this temporary closure we will continue to bring you online programs and events. To enjoy some previous programs, check out our Vimeo channel and videos.

Stay tuned to this website for announcements of future programs. Some programs may be exclusive to our members. You can get notices of these, and help support our education and outreach missions, by joining today (have you renewed your membership?). We need your support now more than ever, in the absence of revenue from Planetarium shows. With your help, when the day comes that we can once again open our doors, we will have new shows for you, and upgraded equipment to present them with.

To see some of what we’ve done in the past, and to keep up with some of the news in the world of astronomy, please visit this page.

We look forward to the day when you can once again join us inside the dome of the Arlington Planetarium. In the mean time, don’t be a stranger.
