Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Planetarium

3720 Florence Boulevard
Omaha, NE 68110


Our planetarium is equipped with an A3-P Spitz projection system. We also have a dozen slide projectors for still image projection. Our video projector produces a 3 meter video image over the front of the planetarium. We also now have a mirror based video projection system that can map an image over the entire dome surface.

Part of the planetarium's lighting system is an Intelligent LED lighting system. It allows us to address each 30 cm section of the cove. We are able to produce light shows and are working in conjunction with Ms. Rathbun's music class to make new shows. Her students produce the music in GarageBand in class and then it is animated an programmed into the control system.
