■ The Planetarium at the East Kentucky Science Center in Prestonsburg has reopened following the installation of a new Spitz SciDome HD Full Dome projection system.
This new system will allow audiences to feel as though they are zipping around the Solar System and through the Milky Way and other galaxies.

The Spitz SciDome HD also comes with the first planetarium resource of its kind: the Spitz Fulldome Curriculum, a series of classes and short demonstrations designed for teaching astronomy in an immersive dome setting.
The East Kentucky Science Center and Planetarium opened in 2004, contains a 3,000 square foot exhibit space, a classroom that can seat up to 50, a gift shop, and the 40-foot domed planetarium. The Planetarium contains a GOTO Chronos Spaceflight Simulator star machine, one of only 16 in the United States, a Spitz SciDome projection system, and a SkyLase laser system.
