What's up with Fiske Planetarium?


When Fiske Planetarium reopens Oct. 12 after months of renovations, visitors will be able to experience a powerful star plus video system paired with a high-definition screen capable of achieving nearly eight times more resolution than the standard HD television, completely surrounding the audience with a 360-degree view. One of the biggest changes, says Matt Benjamin, Fiske Planetarium education program manager, is that Fiske will be open to the public Saturdays and Sundays, playing a variety of "big screen" videos similar to what can be seen at IMAX theaters in Denver.
