The David M. Brown Planetarium Re-Opens to APS Students

APS and the Friends of the Planetarium reopened the David M.Brown Planetarium to over 150 community members and students last weekend—after being closed for three years—featuring its new state-of-the-art projector. As planetarium education continues to evolve, APS will use the planetarium to enrich not just space education but all sciences and arts. The planetarium is now open for APS student field trips. Public events are offered through the Friends of the Planetarium. To learn more and stay up to date on future events, visit Friends of the Planetarium. Contact Mary Clendenning, the Planetarium Specialist, with any questions. Thank you!
