    Our New Digital Projector

    We started using our new Digitarium Lambda system in mid February and got positive feedback from attendees. Unfortunately all shows had to stop in mid March due to Covid-19.

    While the planetarium has been closed,  board members have been learning how to use our new system at home. We have also been taking classes relating to the new system, astronomy topics, how to give planetarium presentations and how to create virtual programing.
