Nebraska Planetariums

Planetariums other than the half dozen featured in our September/October 2016 issue provide aerial amazement in Nebraska. We unearthed a couple observatories, too. Here’s a star-studded sneak peek.

The skies are always clear at the University Nebraska at Kearney’s UNK Planetarium. Find this technologically advanced star spectacular at the Burner Hall of Science at 2401 11th Ave. in Kearney. (308) 865-8277.

The cosmos pause over Midland University in Fremont at Lueninghoener Planetarium. Follow the star trails to E 8th St. (800) 642-8382.

If watching real stars is more your astronomical cup of tea then head to Holmes Park in Lincoln where the Hyde Observatory has local star gazers setting up their personal telescopes for all to enjoy. 3701 S 70th St. (402) 441-7094.
