McKeldin Planetarium

 

The planetarium is named for Theodore R. McKeldin, a former governor of Maryland. St. John's maintains both an observatory and a planetarium on the Annapolis campus for use by members of the College community in conjunction with the laboratory and mathematics tutorials. In addition, students are encouraged to work on special projects using the telescopes. Regular, informal stargazing sessions are held after seminars on Monday and Thursday evenings. Both facilities are also open to the public as astronomical events and activities of general interest arise. For more information visit the observatory web page.
