To increase the capability and versatility of the planetarium, we raised funds to buy a digital planetarium system. The new Digitarium Lambda system was purchased in December 2019 and we are in the process of learning to use its many powerful feature. First shows with it were in February, so come and see it in action.
Future donations will be used toward installation costs, customizing our new system programming tools, and training sessions.
We plan to attend a Live Interactive Planetarium System conference in Colorado this summer. We may also get training from Digitalis on using the new system.
We also need miles from Alaska Airlines.
