University of Minnesota Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium


Star MachineThe Planetarium

The Planetarium is equipped with a Spitz A3P star machine, which projects the stars onto the surface of the 30 foot dome. Installed when the planetarium was built in 1965, the star machine can take you to any observing point in the world, projecting nearly 1500 stars.

For lectures and educational presentations, the Planetarium is equipped with two LCD digital Projectors. One for ordinary projections and another which warps the image reflected off a circular mirror to create a 360 degree full dome projection. Along with our DVD players, stereo system and seating for 60+ people, the our only limitation is your imagination.
