Planetarium features Saturn

By Chemeketa Public Affairs

Saturn is the true Lord of the Rings.  See Saturn in this full-dome presentation as we appreciate the many new images captured by the Cassini spacecraft over a 13 years period.

After a seven year journey from earth, the two-story Cassini spacecraft began orbiting Saturn in July, 2004.  This mission of exploration ended in September 2017 following a successful close-up look at the planet and a final decent into it.

All shows include a brief introduction that explores the night  sky over Salem during this season of the year.

The Chemeketa Planetarium is located in Building 2, Room 171 on the Chemeketa Salem Campus off Lancaster Dr.  Follow the signs to the Blue parking lot and enter Building 2.

Tickets are sold at the door about 15 minutes before show time.  Seating is limited to 60 and sorry, admission is not possible once the show begins.  Seat reservations are not taken at this time.  For more information, please call 503.399.5246.
