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.

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

I would appreciate more age-specific recommendations in the show descriptions. Some of the shows listed for "all ages" are really not geared for younger children. I took a group of 4-6 year-olds to the "Legends of the Zodiac:Equinox" show and they really couldn't understand the more detailed explanations. I would suggest working with the Santa Fe Little School to determine which shows are appropriate for younger audiences.

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.
