Interior View of the Hartnell Planetarium

Welcome to the website of Hartnell College's Planetarium!


UPDATE: Last Friday Hartnell hosted an event for the new STEM building of which the new planetarium is apart. The system was demonstrated to those in attendance. However the building has not yet been completely finished and it is still unclear as to when the new planetarium will be availble for public viewings or field trips.


If you are a member of the PUBLIC, please note that due to the transition to the new planetarium, our Public Programs are currently on hold.


If you are a TEACHER looking to set up a field trip, please note that we are not able to currently host field trips. If you would like to make a reservation for when the new planetarium opens, please visit our School Programs page and your reservation will be addressed in the order it was received.


If you are a STUDENT you should come check out our Student Programs page where we post about activities on and off campus for students.
