Pacific Planetarium

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology,
in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology.
-Carl Sagan


The Pacific Planetarium is born out of the passion of local astronomy educators.

Educators at the Pacific Planetarium work hard to provide engaging topics relating to earth and space sciences with a focus on audience participation and experimentation. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions of our staff members both in and outside of the dome.

The Pacific Planetarium was opened by Digitalis Education Solutions. Inc. in 2011. At Digitalis we manufacture; fixed and portable planetarium systems, portable planetarium domes, and Nightshade NG planetarium software. Our systems are in use at over 700 installations worldwide.

The Pacific Planetarium serves as our test-bed. It is where we test new systems, and new software. It is also where we insure the quality of every system we ship.

Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to provide regularly scheduled public programming. We do strive to have public days multiple times per year. Please check back for upcoming dates and times.
