"The Delta College Planetarium: Bay Region's Window to the Universe"
 with Michael Murray
   Downtown Bay City is home to a world class Dome360 theater and Learning Center.  Learn the story behind the planetarium’s unique architecture, and the historic site that it rests on.  In recent years, the digital dome theater is going through a renaissance that makes use of updated technology to tell new stories.  These journeys go beyond astronomy – they touch on exploration and discovery of our natural world as well.  Science, culture and music all have a place in the new programming being designed at the planetarium.  The theater showcases special programs produced in-house to provide a local perspective on hot topics and current events. 
Mike Murray, Astronomer & Planetarium Manager, will have a unique visual presentation in store!
