Planetarium at Santa Fe Community College

The Planetarium is becoming an integral part of the science and astronomy education curriculum at SFCC, but we also pride ourselves on our accessibility to the general public!

The Planetarium at Santa Fe Community College is a full-dome facility that can be used for a wide range of science-based educational experiences. We are available for hosting private events, birthday parties, K-12 school group visits, adult continuing education classes, and night-sky tours for all ages. Planetariums aren’t only for learning about the planets anymore! We can also create shows about geology, cosmology, and astrobiology.
The immersive demonstrations at The Planetarium at Santa Fe Community College are a fun and exciting way for all ages to explore the cosmos from the comfort of a reclining seat!
  • The Planetarium is located inside of the Main Building of SFCC, West Wing, Room 215 

General Astronomy-Related Topics to be Presented:

Solar System Planets, Lunar Phases, Night Sky Constellations, Galaxies & Cosmology, and more!
