Thank you so much for the stellar narration of Autumn Nights. It was a great first visit of the Santa Fe planetarium for both myself and my fiancée and a great experience for my fiancee's first planetarium visit period.

Our commentator for the night told us plenty of celestial stories that were both informative and entertaining. We were given handouts to review at our leisure covering briefly the things that we learned. We sat in comfortable chairs for a little over an hour watching the latest in planetarium technology. I am sure you will be looking up into the night skies more often after you have watched this show. When we left there were a bunch of people outside waiting to get into the Pink Floyd light show. We will be back to see the other shows that are offered throughout the year. Even though I used my Groupon the regular price is really reasonable to go back again and again and would be appropriate for people of all ages.

On Friday 9/7, our host was most enthusiastic and incredibly knowledgeable. His love of the 'sky' was evident. A nice show. Thank you.

From Our Editors

The Kika Silva Pla Planetarium's astronomers unfurl stellar maps and fascinating science films across a panoramic 34-foot viewing dome. Inside a 60-seat building, audiences gaze at the sky's celestial bodies as two planetarium projectors transpose images onto an expansive ceiling. A stirring score and sound effects further immerse viewers in the educational, absorbing spectacle above them, and with 19.5 million tiny perforations across the dome's surface, each sound and note flows undiluted into the audience's auditory systems as clearly as a bell that has taken years of elocution lessons.

To keep images crisp and realistic, the planetarium employs two very different projectors—a computer-controlled Goto Chronos and a Spitz SciDome digital projector. The Goto employs dozens of meticulously configured lenses to display crisp visuals of stars and planets as they have appeared over the last 10,000 years. The Spitz SciDome converts the planetarium's expansive ceiling into a giant computer screen, turning video and animations into breathtaking clips that dance on the ceiling like Fred Astaire's poltergeist.
