UCLA Unseen: UCLA Planetarium
(Iris Lee/Daily Bruin)
Daily Bruin Video introduces UCLA Unseen, a new weekly series exploring lesser-known places on campus.
The UCLA Planetarium, located on the roof of the Mathematical Sciences building, is a tranquil dome for exploring the night sky and beyond. Planetarium outreach coordinators and UCLA astronomy graduate students Laura Vican and Tom Esposito describe their experiences volunteering with the planetarium, how its weekly public shows operate and the growing importance of the astronomical field. The planetarium is purely student-run and hosts weekly free shows every Wednesday at 7 p.m.
