The Planetarium is an indoor domed theater that seats 44. The Planetarium's projection system was upgraded in 2013 with the installation of a fish-eye lens projector that can display digital simulations of the sky and mimic celestial motions. It allows the audience to see and zoom in on images of stars, constellations, planets, galaxies and other deep sky objects. It also allows the audience to view the sky as seen from different planets and moons, and has many other features. The original Spitz Space Systems A3P projector is still in use and can display the stars and planets of any season, as seen from any latitude, either in their current positions or those of the deep past or far future.
The primary goal of the Planetarium program is education, so we will also feature shows especially geared toward children. We can provide special times and shows for teachers who wish to bring their classes to the Planetarium. Similar arrangements can be made for special showings for other groups, such as corporate, civic, hospital, church, and scouting organizations. Please contact the Planetarium Director to schedule a private show.
