We’ll have you seeing stars in no time at the Robert and Elisabeth Moore Observatory, where our main telescope is a 16-inch Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain optical tube assembly on a Paramount ME German equatorial mount!

Planetarium

Planetarium show

The Bechtel National Planetarium is a 36-foot panoramic viewing dome that simulates a 3-D effect without the use of those silly glasses. In addition to the many educational films we offer, ASCBC sponsors many popular movie showings throughout the school year for student enjoyment.

See in 3-D!
