went in for the plants show, half hour briefly touched on Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and a couple moons. remaining half hour was a laser show bouncing around different cultures, would have enjoyed more if it was more on plants since it was a planetarium and not a concert.

The lady that did the 45 minute talk before the film was a goofball and very boring.. we went to the 2:30 showing on Feb. 11th... my kids were excited about going and then hated it... Change it up or we won't be back!!!

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.
