The Planetarium at Mesa Community College
If you think you have to drive to downtown Phoenix, pay for parking, pay an admission fee and pay an additional charge to see a planetarium show, think again. This 53-seat dome hosts free “Astronomy Nights,” where you can catch multiple screenings of astronomy films inside and peer at the night sky through telescopes set up outside.
