El Camino College Planetarium

16007 Crenshaw Boulevard
Torrance, CA 90501


In the spring of 2005 the El Camino Planetarium installed a new GOTO Chronos planetarium projector with new star plate technology that projects 8,500 stars (down to magnitude 6.5), planets and even the Milky Way. Thirteen of the brightest stars in the sky are projected in their natural colors. In addition to stars, the Chronos projector can accurately display 26 of the most popular celestial objects like the Adromeda Galaxy and the Orion Nebula with dedicated projectors for the Magellanic clouds.
