The planetarium has always been a special place for anyone interested in astronomy. For those who grew up during the Space Race of the 1950s and 1960s, the local planetarium was often a focus of interest. My first trip in 1963 to our local planetarium was an amazing adventure. Under a 6-meter-diameter canvas dome sat the planetarium's projector an early Spitz model. I was already fascinated by astronomy, but as a 9-year-old, the beauty of the stars on that dome was overwhelming.
