In this article, we study the importance of Astronomy in Education. This preliminary study aims to provide an overview of the importance of the existence of Planetarium as Astronomy Education Center at the University of Muhammadiyah Surabaya following the Vision and Mission of UMSurabaya, which is implemented in the Catur Dharma of Muhammadiyah, namely: Education and Teaching, Research, Community Service, and Al-Islam and Kemuhammadiyahan. We argue that the role of Planetarium will support mainly on learning Astronomy to brighten all students to literate science.
