Welcome to the Arthur Planetarium!

The Glenn and Carol Arthur Planetarium, located at the Earth to Sky Park in Burnsville, NC, will now wow audiences with traditional astronomy shows to other STEM education shows all underneath a 36 ft projection dome. Comprised of 60 seats beneath the dome, the planetarium is a multi-use destination for visitors, residents, school children, and Mayland students.

The Arthur Planetarium is handicap and wheelchair accessible.

Join us for an evening of stargazing as you’ve never seen before! Depending on the time of year and the moon phase, visitors will be able to view the moon, planets, and stars through our 34″ diameter mirror on our custom-built Newtonian telescope, as well as our smaller 14″ mirror Meade planetary telescope. With the assistance of our two observatory Managers, visitors will spend two hours viewing and learning about the night sky.

SAM SCOPE

Named the “Sam Scope” in memory of Samuel Phillips, the telescope is an f/3.6 Star Structure Newtonian telescope, with a 34 inch (0.86 meters) mirror. It is the largest telescope in the Southeast US dedicated to public use.

The Samuel L. Phillips Family Foundation, a local nonprofit organization, provided funding for the fabrication of the telescope. Enjoy this magical celestial journey to the stars!
