Since 1958, the Planetarium, located at the U-M Museum of Natural History, has been a community astronomy resource. Shows include seasonal star talks about the current night sky and programs on contemporary topics in astronomy; most school programs align with current curricular guidelines. A slot is reserved on Saturday mornings for Girl/Boy Scout troops and other community groups. Full-dome experiences are highly visual experiences that both educate and entertain. In addition, programs can be customized by adding a short, live segment on The Night Sky, Planets, Sky Motions, and The Universe.
