Ritter Planetarium and Brooks Observatory

About Us

Please pardon our appearance as we redesign our website.

The Ritter Planetarium is a state of the art fulldome immersive visualization theater utilizing the world’s first Spitz SciDome XD projection system.  Capable of projecting over six million pixels on to our 40 foot dome, the SciDome XD maintains all of the functions of a traditional analog planetarium while also offering breathtaking images of the Universe and the ability to play fulldome programming.

The Brooks Observatory, located atop McMaster Hall on the University of Toledo campus, houses several refracting and reflecting telescopes for viewing the heavens. McMaster Hall also houses a solar telescope for viewing sunspots and other solar phenomena.
