We are on!

To all our faithful followers, we have started a project fund on for a new sound system. We are looking to have a 3-way tower speaker funded for our dome.

Last year, we were lucky enough to have a generous student donate his speakers, system, and amps to be used in the dome during the school year. However, with graduation left the speakers.

Right now, we have a set of computer speakers rigged to the DVD player for sound. It is working, but we are looking for something permanent. On a side note, I'd really love to have my computer speakers back!

If you think this project is great and you feel like contributing to our project, please visit We currently only have $259 to go.

People have even donated to get others to not grow mustaches...weird, but awesome for our students.

What we've done in the dome this year!

So far this year we have constructed the dome, watched Apollo 13 after finishing a project on the Apollo missions, used Stellarium (a star software) to practice making sky observations, and watched "The Universe: Constellations" as a starting off point for our Lurking in the Shadows Project on constellations.  We are looking forward to many more hours of dome fun before the dome must come down for another year the middle of November.
