Out-Of-This-World Presentations

The Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium at Seminole State College of Florida offers live, interactive shows and full-dome video presentations that are unlike any planetarium show you'll ever experience. From traditional star displays and cultural shows that detail the importance of astronomy around the world, to feature presentations that whisk you through the depths of outer space, the planetarium has something for curious stargazers of all ages.

Located on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, the planetarium has served Central Florida for more than 20 years as a fun and educational resource for school groups and classes, from preschool to college.

The planetarium is also home to the Central Florida Astronomical Society, one of the largest amateur astronomy societies in the Southeast.

Our staff invites you to an unforgettable evening — to experience the fascinating world of astronomy. We hope that your time at the planetarium piques your curiosity to learn even more about Earth, our solar system and beyond.
