UW Planetarium Cancels Programming Indefinitely Due to Coronavirus

March 25, 2020

As the public health situation continues to develop with regard to the novel coronavirus COVID-19, the University of Wyoming Harry C. Vaughan Planetarium is sensitive to the ongoing need to limit public gatherings and practice social distancing.

“In order to help preserve our community's health, we will be postponing all of our shows indefinitely,” says Max Gilbraith, the planetarium coordinator. “We will reopen to public and private shows when federal, state, local and campus health experts give guidance allowing such events to take place again.”

In the meantime, Gilbraith asks those interested to follow the planetarium on social media to receive entertaining and educational astronomy-related content. The latest updates on shows and events when the planetarium does reopen will be available. Follow the planetarium on Facebook at www.facebook.com/UWyoPlanetarium/, on Twitter at www.twitter.com/UWyoPlanetarium and on Instagram at www.instagram.com/uwyoplanetarium/.

“We want to sincerely thank the University of Wyoming and Laramie community for the wonderful support over the last few months, and look forward to serving them again in the near future,” Gilbraith says. “Our best wishes of good health and fortune go out to all during these times of uncertainty.”
