Star Theater

Morehead State University

Morehead State University’s Star Theater has been ranked among the top 30 college planetariums by the website, Great Value Colleges.

In composing the ranking, the site considered four factors: 

Is the facility a planetarium or an observatory? A planetarium is a simulation of the night sky, while an observatory uses telescopes to look at the actual sky at that moment. The Star Theater is both.
