The Friends of the Marie Drake Planetarium a 501(c)(3) was formed in 2011 to support the planetarium
and astronomy education. The long term goal is to obtain funding for a new projector.
The planetarium projector allows us to model the sky even when the weather is miserable! It has been run by volunteers for over twenty years. Click here to learn more about our Spitz projector.
