Digital and Live Full-Dome Planetarium Shows
Our digital full-dome theater features a seamless 33-foot diameter dome and a dual-projector 4k laser projection system. The Digistar 7 system by Evans & Sutherland transforms our planetarium into a virtual starship, creating real-time visualizations that transport our audience to other planets, star systems, and beyond. Our planetarium also screens pre-recorded shows on a variety of topics including spaceflight, aviation, biology, and history.
The planetarium is also available for private bookings and events, including school trips, scout groups, birthday parties, corporate events, and weddings. Contact us for more info.
The Henry B. duPont III Planetarium is brought to you by the Nor’easter Foundation.
