UT Arlington Planetarium

The Planetarium at UT Arlington offers live stargazing and prerecorded programs throughout the week. Shows are typically one-hour long, and consist of approximately 30 minutes of stargazing at the night sky and another 30 minutes of prerecorded video. The 60 ft. dome is one of the largest, and most sophisticated planetariums in the state of Texas. One of the shows offered recently was Apollo’s Flight, a multi-media show with live original composition by Marek Eneti and spacey film footage. Planetarium Program Coordinator, Amy Barraclough, tells us more about Apollo’s Flight and also invites the public, school groups and the UTA community to come enjoy a one-in-a-lifetime experience.
