Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium @ LSC

Guys, we have an actual, humongous, amazing planetarium in New Jersey now!!!

Get ready to fly through the universe, roam distant planets, and navigate asteroid fields.

Liberty Science Center’s greatest experience yet, the Jennifer Chalsty Planetarium and LSC Giant Dome Theater, is now open! It is the largest and most technologically advanced planetarium in the Western Hemisphere. Only three others in the world—two in Japan and one in China—are bigger.

The new planetarium boasts a resolution of 88 million pixels, a lighting system that can produce over 281 trillion individual colors, and new speakers capable of producing 30,000 watts of digital sound.

Be among the first to experience our 89-foot full-dome view of the night sky and distant galaxies. You’ll also be one of the first to see a beautiful, high-definition recreation of the Orion Nebula prior to its official release at the American Astronomical Society in Washington, D.C., next year. As part of our live show Wonders of the Universe you’ll see the Orion Nebula—one of the crown jewels of the night sky—at a level of detail never before seen.
