We saw the show "Life of Trees" with a presentation on the zodiac before.The presenter did a good job creating an atmosphere of inquiry and openness .Kids felt free to call out their answers.We had two 5 year old and a two year old and the movie Life of Trees " was appropriate for them all.

The best seats appear to be those closest to the control desk.

From Our Editors

On September 19, 1975, CU alum Wallace Franze Fiske?s wish ?to build and equip a planetarium for the University of Colorado? was finally realized with the dedication of the eponymous geodesic dome built thanks to his generous bequest. From its inaugural showing of a program detailing supernovae decades ago, the planetarium has upheld Fiske?s vision with an ever-evolving lineup of educational initiatives, engaging events, and outreach activities. Now under the helm of a passionate staff composed of members of CU?s Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences, its programs grant the community a chance to explore the wonders of outer space. The skyward dome of Fiske Planetarium, featuring a state-of-the-art 8K theater, one of the first in the nation, acts as a projector screen for immersive, 360-degree educational star shows showcasing the universe's glittering galactic splendor. Laser shows set to jazz, rock, and classical music feature choreographed lasers and special effects that perform a wave-particle Humpty Dance for the audience's amusement. Audiences can catch showings in Spanish as well as English.
