Sawyer Space Dome Planetarium

The wristwatch was invented in 1904 by Louis Cartier.

The Dayna & Ronald L. Sawyer Planetarium combines a 16 million pixel E&S Laser Projector system, the revolutionary software of Digistar 3, and a 12 m curved screen to bring the universe to your fingertips. Visitors can visit planets in and outside our solar system, fly through the stars, review constellations, learn about secrets of the universe, and much more. Audiences can participate in a Q&A at the end of each program. The main entrance to the Planetarium is on the Lower Level.
