|Facility:||Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center|
|Description:||Offering public star shows and large-format films showing daily in the dome theater, and public star observing courtesy of the Astronomical Society of Nevada. Built in 1964 they were the first planetarium in the world to project full-dome movies (of time-lapse clouds and weather phenomena).
After recently undergoing upgrades, Fleischmann Planetarium and Science Center is now one of the first of a handful of planetariums around the world to utilize the Spitz SciDome digital projector, a high-resolution, state-of-the-art immersive visualization tool that produces extraordinarily bright and colorful 3-D images.
