The popular end-of-semester Tour the Universe Astronomy Night is hosted once again this year by the Mesa Community College Planetarium!
Our tradition of ending the semester with Tour the Universe with Pink Floyd continues. See the new show for the first time or come back and see it again!
Please note that tickets are FREE and first come, first serve only. You are welcome to pick up tickets after 5:30pm at the Planetarium entrance. Other activities are available for visitors waiting for their show time.
During Astronomy Nights, we also offer telescope viewing of the Moon, planets, and other celestial sights. Unlike the planetarium shows, telescope viewing will only occur if the skies are clear. The line starts 10 minutes before show time.
The planetarium is wheelchair accessible.
Astronomy Nights are held at the Physical Science Building (PS 15) just east of Dobson Road, on Planetarium Way between the Dobson-US 60 interchange and Southern Avenue.
The Planetarium is located on the south side of the Physical Science Building and is labeled with “PLANETARIUM” in large black letters which are visible from Dobson Road and Planetarium Way.
Free parking is available in the lots south of the Physical Science Building. Please avoid parking in the spaces marked “EMPLOYEES” until after 6:00 PM.
Friday, December 1 at 6 PM – 10 PM

About the MCC Planetarium:
MCC’s Planetarium opened in August 2008 as part of the new Physical Science building at the Southern & Dobson campus.
Our 52-seat Planetarium is used for astronomy classes at MCC, but it is also available to K-12 school groups or public groups of any age interested in astronomy.
The planetarium is now open for regular school groups and public visits.
Our Astronomy Nights are held on the first Friday of the month during the Spring and Fall session and include planetarium shows and telescope viewing (weather permitting).
