What if it is cloudy? In the event of rain or clouds, we also have a fully functional planetarium and substitute a planetarium program instead. The planetarium is located at the opposite end of the building from the blue dome but all you need do is follow the signs inside the building. The planetarium is a small theater with seating for 25 around a Spitz projector which illuminates a 360 degree hemispheric screen overhead.
