Planetarium

Ask Jeeves Planetarium

Our 70-foot full-dome shows transport audiences across the far reaches of the Universe.

The Ask Jeeves Planetarium uses three visualization systems, which operate independently or in combination, to transport audiences on explorations of the Earth and Beyond.

  • See the night sky as if you were viewing it from an uninhabited dark sky location on Earth. Our Zeiss Universarium fiber-optic star projector, one of only four in the United States, reveals the night sky, minus the glare of city lights, using world-class optics to create a precise, deep-field sky with up to 6,000 celestial objects.
  • Fly through Earth’s upper atmosphere or voyage far beyond our galaxy. Our Digital Sky system can take you from a journey around Mars to an exploration of Dark Matter to a visit of exoplanets orbiting other stars, and beyond.
  • Kick back to music and a light show during our laser-animation sound shows. Our Skylase shows inspire and engage the imagination through a multi-sensory immersive experience.

Chabot’s full-dome Planetarium shows let you to explore the Earth to the frontiers of the Milky Way galaxy observable Universe, all from the comfort of a climate controlled theater.
