 The Bowling Green State University Planetarium is a 118–seat public science theater serving BGSU students, area schools, and the public of northwest Ohio. Set under a 40-foot dome, the Minolta star projector can show the sky as it would be seen from any place on the Earth at any time, including the Sun, Moon, planets, and more than 4000 stars. The Planetarium's 50 slide projectors, video projection system, special visual effects projectors, multi-channel sound system, and Omni-Q automation controls are used to create educational multimedia programs on astronomy and other topics. The Planetarium was opened in 1984 and is operated by the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
