Ben Long Planetarium

The Planetarium, located on the main floor of Crawford Hall, is a dual purpose theater and classroom. The room was opened in 1975 with a generous donation from Benjamin H. Long.

The Planetarium has public shows several times a year and is well suited to accommodate groups of up to 50 with its 30 ft dome ceiling. Most viewings include a classic astronomy faculty-led show, although some LSSU based groups(s) have used a mirrored projector for digital movies!
