Upcoming Shows Classes Home About Booking


ODU's Pretlow Planetarium is happy to announce our new line-up for summer 2015. We're bring back our popular series from last summer. Every Wednesday night, from May 27 - August 5, we will have a free planetarium show followed by public observing sessions with our telescopes. The shows will start at 8:30 and cover what's currently in the night sky. Afterwards, at 9:00, we'll go out and look at some of these celestial objects with our scopes as long as the weather cooperates.

Bad Movie Night
