Planetarium spotlight - the Peterborough Planetarium

Astronomy educators Peter McMahon and Rick Stankewicz have just completed their first year of offerring planetarium programming in the Durham and Kawarthas area.


The Peterborough Planetarium is an inflatable dome which can hold 30-40 people during a show. The star patterns and images are projected on the ceiling of the dome. 

"Thanks to the hundreds of educators and other members of the public as well as the thousands of students (nearly 9,000 by our estimates) that made our first year in business a cosmic success!"


Here is an interview Rick had with CBC radio last September as the planetarium program began.
