Reach for the stars inside Tampa's only Planetarium!
The new Saunders Planetarium will be unveiled on July 12, 2008 and will be located inside Kids in Charge! Guests will be able to use the GOTO Space Simulator Chronos projection system to explore the sky.
The original planetarium was made possible through the Saunders Foundation and opened on October 3, 1992. Since then, nearly 700,000 visitors have experienced the wonders of astronomy under its dome. The new planetarium project is sponsored by the generous support of the Saunders Foundation, Andrew Krusen Family, Dick and Cornelia Corbett, and the William Stamps Farish Fund.
The new Saunders Planetarium will open on Saturday, July 12. For more information, visit www.mosi.org.
