A current sky talk, using the Digistar projector, will follow all shows. Outdoor observing is held after evening shows as sky conditions permit. Telescopes in front of Abrams Planetarium offer views of selected astronomical objects.

Private Shows are available for $100 ($80 for Members). Private shows are limited to 20 people. You can choose any show in our library. All shows last about an hour and include a live star talk about what is up in the night sky. To book please call us at (517) 355-4676 or email abrams@msu.edu with 3 choices of date and time, the show you would like to book, the number of households coming and the number of people per household so we can set up seating appropriately.
