Who doesn’t love looking at the stars?
The Whittenberger Planetarium has been serving since 1970. It is the annual destination of thousands of people throughout the Treasure Valley and beyond. Programs are provided to school and home-school groups, scouts, the public, college classes and more.
The projector sits under a 24-foot dome with seating for 50 people. The projector can show northern and limited southern constellations, all planets visible to the unaided eye, the sun, moon, a few deep space objects, and both nightly and annual motions of all of the above. The sky can be viewed from different locations and times on Earth with several specialized projectors helpful in demonstrating daily and seasonal changes visible in the night sky.
Kids love it and adults will too!
