The Ric and Jean Edelman Planetarium at Rowan University is a resource for public outreach and astronomy education with state-of-the-art planetarium and laser projection systems, a 0.4m research observatory and amateur telescopes, and a suite of hands-on activity toolkits in Glassboro, NJ - 20 miles southeast of Philadelphia. We have been an educational staple in the community for more than 15 years, offering planetarium shows, star parties, school field trips, and special events for the public.

The Edelman Planetarium's mission is to create a sense of wonder about the night sky and its connections to the world around us. We achieve this by advancing the understanding of the universe and serving as a public resource for astronomical information for a broad and diverse audience.


Explore the skies during one of our public shows. We offer live stargazing and immersive 360-degree video on our digital sky. All shows are 1-hour long, and everyone is welcome to attend.
