Check out Rowan University’s Planetarium
Rowan University hosts a variety of immersive 360-degree video shows weekly with ticket prices ranging from $2-$5. Our personal favorite is Supervolcanoes. A recent show, narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, took viewers through the history and impact of these eruptions, flying to Neptune’s moon, Triton, Jupiter’s Moon Io, and returning home in Yellowstone National Park.
