BASF Planetarium Special Events

Scholastic Bowl

As one of the most anticipated events of the year, BASF Planetarium’s Scholastic Bowl welcomes adult and high school teams to The Center for the Arts & Sciences for an evening of trivia and fun. Over three rounds, teams answer a litany of questions concerning, art, science, pop culture and local interests.

Scholastic Bowl is the main fundraising event for BASF Planetarium and relies on the entry fees, individual and corporate sponsorships for this event to help fund its educational activities throughout the year.

2025 date TBD
  • Adult and high school student teams
  • Four members per team
  • Registration is $100 per team

Astronomy Night

Each Fall and Spring, BASF Planetarium hosts Astronomy Night. Our local advocational astronomers set up their telescopes and hands-on astronomy activities in the parking lot of The Center for the Arts & Sciences. When the skies are clear, participants are encouraged to view celestial objects in our night sky.

In addition to the telescopes and related activities, the planetarium will present short shows periodically throughout the events. Astronomy Night takes place “rain or shine” and is FREE to the public! 

Stay tuned for future Astronomy Night dates!
