The planetarium at Centennial High School recently got a $250,000 upgrade. The school got a new projector system and roughly 60 interactive seats. Plus, they repainted the dome and upgraded the audio system.
This is one of the biggest renovations since the planetarium opened in 1973. "We have had some parents that have been repeat attendees of the planetarium--back when they were in the school system they attended as third and fourth graders and now they're coming back--and they are very fascinated by the upgrades that we've made," Adolph Vigil, planetarium director.
The planetarium is one of only a handful of high schools in the U.S. with a digital theater system. They show a variety of space programs.
Schools and the public are invited to visit the planetarium. For details on show times and admission, visit the Pueblo City Schools website.
