“At University of Colorado at Boulder”
Fiske Planetarium and Science Center is located on the campus of the University of Colorado, in Boulder, Colorado. First opened in 1971 from a generous donation from Wallace Franz Fiske (class of 1917), Boulder's own planetarium hosts a diverse range of star shows, star talks, laser shows, and special live events. Our planetarium's 20-meter diameter dome (the largest between Chicago and Los Angeles) was for many years home to one of the few Zeiss Mark VI Star Projectors, affectionately known as "Fritz," after the German engineer who oversaw its installation. In 2013, Fiske began a major systems upgrade, making it one of the most technically advanced theaters on planet Earth. Fiske Planetarium and Science Center works to serve CU faculty and students, local schools, and the general public. We host special talks and educational events, and often host large crowds during astronomical and NASA-related events. Fiske is open from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm weekdays, and select hours in the evenings and on weekends for special events, including weekly laser shows on Friday nights and a topical discussion of the night sky on Thursday evenings.
Very cool. They have one of the top three projection systems in the world so needless to say it was top notch. Highly recommend!
