Yahn Planetarium at Penn State Behrend Now Open

The Yahn Planetarium at Penn State Behrend, a 55-seat astronomy theater, opens Thursday, Nov. 6, after more than a year of renovations and improvements. The facility, housed in the School of Science at Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, expands the original mission of the planetarium, a fixture in Erie since 1959.

The Erie County Historical Society closed the planetarium in 2013 to focus on other holdings. Penn State Behrend took ownership of the equipment, which complements the college’s outreach programs, including the popular Open House Nights in Astronomy.
