Planetarium Show

February 7th, 2018 7:00 PM
Contact Number: 580.548.2314
Location: NOC Mackie Planetarium, Hedges between Randolph & Maine

The astronomy center and planetarium on the NOC-Enid campus is open the first Wednesday of each month during the academic year. The Mackie Planetarium is one of the largest college planetariums in the United States.

The planetarium show will present the winter night sky over Enid and will point out a star factory where stars are being created today.  We will show how to find this star factory from your back yard.   We will show how star clusters of various ages appear in our early evening sky over Enid.  We will also take a trip to Saturn.  The observatory will be open for viewing objects in our night sky after the planetarium show if the weather is clear.  There is no charge for the planetarium show but we do accept non-perishable food items for Our Daily Bread.
