Plenty of star power can be found at Hudnall Planetarium.

The astronomy-based building was built in 1963 on the campus of Tyler Junior College, and is used as an educational exhibit room and domed viewing theater. The dome of the theater is 30 feet in diameter, and the planetarium offers an assortment of telescopes for the public to view the heavens.

Hudnall Planetarium also hosts a number of children’s programs, including “The Friendly Stars” that provides an overview of planets. Another program is called “Larry, Cat in Space” that features a cat who lives with his owner, Diana, on the first science outpost on the moon.
