Open to the public for shows, star-gazing events, field trips, and private functions, The Planetarium reflects The University of Texas at Arlington's commitment to service through educational engagement with the community.
With a 60 foot diameter dome and state of the art Digistar 3 CRT Projection system, The Planetarium at UT Arlington is one of the largest and most sophisticated in the state of Texas. The Digistar 3 system can project stars, planets, galaxies, and virtually anything else onto the dome as they look in the real sky (including both the Northern and Southern hemispheres - when was the last time you saw the Southern Cross?) as well as immerse the audience in a full dome animation show. Shows combine stunning visual effects on the dome with powerful surround sound to transport audiences to all reaches of the universe, from a light-speed trip to see mysterious black holes to a wild safari into the human body.
The theater provides comfortable reclining seats for an audience of nearly 150 and is wheelchair friendly. The planeterium can provide radio headsets for the hearing impaired.
