DPAS receives new planetarium

The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society (DPAS) has another tool to help people view the night sky. They received a new planetarium on Earth Day and it has already been set up for viewings. Members of DPAS have been learning the new software this past week according to board member Dave Lenius. The planetarium along with the new telescopes installed earlier in the year mean that the night sky can be viewed and learned about all year long. Lenius added the planetarium will be best for viewing when the observatory can’t be used because of a cloudy night.



The next DPAS viewing night is scheduled for Saturday. The new planetarium is located at the Stonecipher Astronomy Center at Crossroads at Big Creek, right next to the Leif Everson Observatory.
