The CCNY Planetarium
First installed in 1973-74, the CCNY Planetarium in the Marshak Science Building has seen decades of action bringing crystal clear night skies to the locals of Hamilton Heights as well as the greater NYC metropolitan region. Its use has fluctuated over the years, however we are currently taking steps to bring the planetarium back to life by adding some modern technologies to the room. We’ll compliment the existing Spitz 512 analog instrument with digital projections and theatre quality audio. During the first half of 2018, we plan to begin offering shows again for CCNY students. After we iron out the wrinkles, we hope to expand our invitations to local neighborhoods and schools as well. In the meantime, follow us here on FB or Instagram (ccnyplanetarium) to hear about updates and announcements.
