Clever Planetarium

& Earth Science Center

The George H. Clever Planetarium at San Joaquin Delta College provides a comprehensive series of space science and earth science education programs to school children from Stockton, Manteca, Lodi, Tracy, Rio Vista, Sacramento, Modesto and the Mother Lode, including Sonora. The planetarium regularly hosts school field trips from as far away as Fresno in the south to Chico in the north.

The Clever Planetarium features a Spitz 512 prime sky instrument nicknamed Herman, which projects the stars on a 33 foot aluminum dome. This instrument can show the sky of any date-past, present or future-from any location on Earth. All the motions of the planet Earth can be simulated and accelerated so that days, years, centuries or a millennia can be made to pass before the viewers' eyes in a matter of minutes.
