SHAPE YOUR
DESTINY.

When our students aren’t in the classroom, they’re learning in the real world. Because sometimes it’s these experiences that make the best lessons.

WVU Planetarium and Observatory

The planetarium presents free public shows on alternating Friday evenings. The shows provide a glimpse into the night sky, highlighting the wonders of the universe, its origins and our place among the cosmos. The observatory is located atop the physics department and is equipped with a 14-inch Celestron telescope for public viewing in concert with the planetarium shows.
