The 80-seat Noble Planetarium brings the wonders of the universe to you! A smaller, all-digital projection system offers a more dynamic view of the night sky and enables trips to destinations across the galaxy. The connected gallery offers a stunning view of the Milky Way, real-time images of the Sun and an exhibit on meteorites.

The planetarium shares space with the Cattle Raisers Museum and alternate astronomy programs with the Cattle Raisers’ introductory presentation, “Thundering Herd.”
