As part of the University’s response to COVID-19, the Hummel Planetarium will be closed to the public through July at this time. As a mass use facility (over 700 visits weekly) and the nature of use, the increased risk for transmission of COVID-19 is of great concern. The Hummel Planetarium is dedicated to the health and safety of all visitors, and we are in support of this decision to preserve public health. You can also call 859-622-1547 , 8am-4:30pm, to talk to our staff about any questions or email us at planetarium.eku.edu.
