Longo Planetarium

214 Center Grove Road

fter many years of planning and nearly a year of work, the new Madeline D. and Joseph J. Longo Planetarium has reopened! Our new Planetarium and digital theater – an $800,000 upgrade – offer more capabilities than ever before. Stay tuned for new programs and creative uses of our new, state-of-the-art facility.

The universe is just one of the many things we can present in our new theater. Now, almost anything that can be imagined in the cosmos can be presented in new and exciting ways. Our dome is perfect for our Introduction to Astronomy and General Astronomy classes here at CCM, but also perfect for presentations in Meteorology, History, Archeology, Communications and Literature. Local grade school students, who make up the majority of our visitors every year, will benefit from our ability to augment their educations in science and space science. 

Our new planetarium seats 91 people, and besides the new interior with new seating, there’s a new sound system, lighting and an exciting gallery of space images in the newly renovated lobby and entrance area.

If I could, I would give 10!!! stars. I just hung up, spoke with Christene - I think this is how your name is Kristen??- - at Financial Reimbursement. I cannot say it louder "What a great, helpful, knowledgeable and supportive person she is.". You went way beyond. I appreciate it.

Great county school. It’s a school where you need to get your education and leave as soon as you can.

Great county college. One of, if not the best in NJ.

This is going to be my first year. Hopefully some of these reviews can somewhat be a positive one.

Horrible attitudes in The Bursars office. Cathy needs to stop being condescending and invalidating and answer questions with kindness. You are in a customer svc. position and should act accordingly. The Prima Dona attitude must go. The way she spoke to me was deplorable and she should not be representing CCM. I am paying you money; you should be kissing my feet and thanking me and thanking the powers that be you have a job.
