CWU Lydig Planetarium

Sciences II Planetarium Name-A-Seat Campaign

The Lydig Planetarium is a fully digital planetarium using 6 projectors and running World Wide Telescope - an open scource project originally started by Mirosoft Research. World Wide Telescope allows the planetarium to project not only the night sky, but also a 3D model of the solar system as well as coordinate systems and overlays of constellations. The planetarium was built as part of the Science II building construction and was designed for planetarium shows as well as lectures. The room has an occupancy of 82 people.
