This Summer at Fleischmann Planetarium

June 20, 2010

Fleischmann Planetarium & Science Center at the University of Nevada, Reno is offering several immersive theater experiences in Summer 2010, including the large-format feature film “Mystery of the Nile” and two full-dome digital shows: the new “Saturn: Jewel of the Heaven,” and “Secret of the Cardboard Rocket.” The Planetarium also has weekly showings of the full-dome HD digital rock ‘n’ roll masterpiece, “Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon.”

The Planetarium Exhibit Hall museum contains permanent exhibits including large-scale rotating Earth and Moon globes, a black hole demonstrator, and the largest collection of meteorites in Nevada. The Planetarium is currently hosting an exhibition created by the University’s Department of Psychology exploring visual perception. Most seasonal exhibitions are free.

Fleischmann Planetarium is located north of Lawlor Events Center at Virginia and 16th Streets, on UNR campus. Free parking is available in designated spaces in the West Stadium Parking Complex, level 3, just east of the Planetarium. See the online schedule for show tickets, showtimes and Planetarium hours. Call (775) 784-4811 for more information.
