Emera Astronomy Center and Jordan Planetarium – Come explorer the Universe and more!

Have you ever dreamed of traveling amongst the stars, exploring the galaxy, or learning about space travel?  Have you ever wondered how the human body works, what makes plants grow, or how global warming is changing our world?  If so, the Emera Astronomy Center and Jordan Planetarium at the University of Maine is the place to come explore the Universe of science! The facility is home to the largest planetarium in the state of Maine and enables audiences to explore these topics in a dramatic multi-media environment.

The planetarium is a modern 4K resolution digital facility which uses visualization to share astronomy and numerous other sciences with students of all ages and the general public.  Using a cluster of special computers and two high resolution projectors we can recreate not just astronomical and space related content, but also explore numerous other topics such biology, chemistry, climate science, engineering, mathematics and geography to name some of the possibilities.

We host a library of unique, immersive programs for all ages, from pre-K to adults. With a continually changing line-up of public planetarium programs, school field trips, and special events, there is always something new to explore.  The facility offers a variety of special cosmic themed services such as birthday party packages and corporate events.
