Behind the Scenes in The Planetarium

Here's a rare "behind the screen" shot of our Planetarium from above. We're looking through the tiny holes in the dome to the theater below, as we prepare for our reopening on November 22. We have been installing shows, rehearsing our live performances, and cleaning to get ready for the big day.

The Planetarium Gets a Star
