The Friends of Arlington's Planetarium (FOP)

The Friends provide programming that may include full dome programs and fascinating lectures from the field of Astronomy and other scientific fields designed to broaden our appeal to the planetarium-going public.  These programs are held the 3rd weekend of the month during the school year and presented in lieu of the regular program schedule.
See their website for more details.  www.friendsoftheplanetarium.org.
2015 - 2016 Friends Schedule:
Apr 15-17   Human Space Exploration
May 20-22  Transits & Eclipses

Most FOP programs will be held at the regularly scheduled weekend showtimes.
All proceeds go directly to support the planetarium programs and science education
in Arlington Public Schools.
In the event of bad weather, when school activities are canceled, the Planetarium will also be closed (call 703-228-4277). However, if the swimming pools are open, public planetarium shows will proceed as scheduled. For more information, please use the links at the left.
