Toledo’s shining star


The Toledo area may already know that the Lourdes College Appold Planetarium offers an out-of-this-world experience, but now families throughout the state are learning about this beautiful gem. The Planetarium was recently named “Best Place to See the Stars” by Ohio Magazine. Dr. Laura Megeath, Planetarium Coordinator, says, “I’m so pleased that the Appold Planetarium received this award. This is such an exciting time for astronomy  and Lourdes Planetarium is the ideal destination for teaching and learning about the latest discoveries and space missions.”
Renovated in 2006, The Planetarium features SciDome, a single projector fulldome video system, with astronomical detail and teaching capabilities. Head to to see what programs the stars have in store.
