As of March 17, 2020, Triton College's Campus is closed. Updates will be provided as they become available. No one is to report to campus at this time.
To accompany many of the Summer of Space broadcasts on WTTW PBS Chicago, the Cernan Earth and Space Center staff created a special 30 second video to highlight the dramatic planetarium experience offered here on the Triton College campus in River Grove, IL. Be sure to have your speakers turned up, and feel free to share.
Special Thanks to all the creative people who produce amazing content for planetariums!

The Cernan Earth and Space Center completed upgrades of the planetarium sound system, computers and software on July 3 and has resumed presenting programs suitable for all ages seven days a week.
You can get the complete schedule of programs, pricing, and more at www.triton.edu/cernanPBS.
This planetarium also presents Cosmic Light (Laser) Shows with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon featured during July 2019. Bright lights, loud music, very little educational value but tied to the Total Solar Eclipse on July 2 and the Apollo 50th anniversary.

Hope to see you in our space soon!
