Old Dominion University has recently made an official statement about growing concerns over the spread of the Coronavirus. Part of the plan to mitigate spread of the virus is to cancel all public events for the immediate future. Please visit for continuous updates. Unfortunately, we will have to cancel all planetarium shows and events at the planetarium for the forseeable future. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for more astronomy fun. We're working on new content to be able to share while everyone is staying home and social distance. We do still plan to to hold some events virtually (like our Bad Movie Nights). We will be back at the planetarium as soon as possible based on ODU's decisions about when to resume normal operations. These are unprecedented times, and we fully support ODU in their decision to make students', and the community's, health their #1 concern. Thank you for your continued support of the Pretlow Planetarium. We hope to be able to reopen soon. Justin Mason Planetarium Director Old Dominion University
