The Planetarium at UT Arlington

Living in a big metropolitan area has its downsides, as the night sky is blocked by light pollution that blocks out the stars. At the Planetarium, guests are seated underneath a 60-foot-diameter dome, where they peer skyward at stunning images of the universe, educational films, and Texas stargazing, which is presented live by a scientist at The Planetarium at UT Arlington. A Digistar 5 DLP Projection system displays its photonic glory across the cosmic screen as booming surround sound rumbles into ears. Regularly scheduled public shows educate and thrill guests with explorations of distant stars and music shows.
