WHAT do we do?
We offer a diverse range of fulldome films, star talks, live talks, laser fantasy and liquid sky music shows, concerts, and theatrical productions. Plus, we host large public gatherings during celestical events, such as eclipses, conjunctions, etc. and NASA-related launches/landings.
We serve CU faculty and students, local schools and teachers, our community, and out of town visitors.

Our 65-foot diameter dome is the largest planetarium between Chicago and Los Angeles and seats 206 guests. Our 8K Sky-Skan projection system, cutting-edge content, dazzling visuals, and fantastic sound system are unparalleled. Plus, we have a MegaStar projector which shows 10 million stars and the Milky Way, creating one of the most beautiful indoor skies ever.
