Ask Mr. B!

****TELESCOPE 101****

Thank you to everyone who attended the first Planetarium Program of the 2019-20 school year back in September! Our next program is coming up on Monday, October 21 at 7:30 pm in the North Penn Planetarium. Bring your telescopes as we learn how to equip, calibrate and use them in a program entitled Telescope 101! Don't have a telescope, but want to learn more about them feel free to use one of our planetarium telescopes. Weather permitting we will be outside for much of the program! See you then!

Mr. B

The North Penn School District would like to welcome you to the North Penn Planetarium. Our planetarium features a state of the art 30 foot dome and can seat up to 57 people. We offer programming that caters to all ages featuring presentations that focus on such things as our changing night sky, the seasonal sun and the moon, as well as many other aspects of our sky.

If you have some questions for Mr. Bauman, the Planetarium Director, check out the Ask Mr. B! link on the left. You can also check out the NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day by clicking on the NASA link on the left. You will also find a link for a feedback form. If you have attended a program at the planetarium, please take a few minutes to fill out the form so that we can hear about your experience and work to make our programs the most enjoyable and educational that we can. Please check out the link to request use of the planetarium for a private function/group. You will find information about our fee structure and the programs that we offer, as well as a form to submit for reserving the planetarium. After you submit your form, I will be in touch as soon as I am able to confirm dates, times and the programming.
