Giving to the UCLA Planetarium

Interior of UCLA planetarium

Located atop UCLA’s Math Sciences Building, the UCLA Planetarium is a unique and intimate setting where UCLA students, the L.A. community, and K-12 students learn about the Universe at free shows presented primarily by astronomy students. The star projector is at the heart of the Planetarium, recreating the night sky on the inside of the dome. Audiences enjoy stunning views of lunar craters, cloud patterns on Jupiter, Saturn’s rings, star systems, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies – all from the heart of UCLA’s campus!

Major philanthropic investment is essential to modernize the Planetarium and secure the future of this beloved campus landmark.
