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!

the Delta College Planetarium, 100 Center Avenue. The
