The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium and Alexander Brest Space Theater are equipped with the latest technology to create a planetarium experience like nothing you’ve seen before.

While the specifics of the equipment may sound complicated, one thing is perfectly clear: the view.

The Bryan-Gooding Planetarium features:

  • The Konica Minolta Super MediaGlobe II, a full-color single-lens dome system with high resolution projection.
  • A fish-eye lens that projects seamless images over the entire dome without distortion.

Combined, these tools can create super-realistic simulations of our universe – as well as sharp projections of computer graphic and live-action movies.
