The world’s first full-dome, full-color digital planetarium with single lens projection, the MEDIAGLOBE II, arrived at Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreation Area just in time for the 2012 season.

“This compact, full-color dome projection system has thrilled our audiences since we installed it in March,” reported Ross Workman, the new Golden Pond Planetarium manager. He continued, “The projection range covers our entire dome with vibrant colors, sound, and action by using the ‘3D astronomical simulation’ function. It’s amazing!”

New digital videos will entertain and educate people of all ages. Computer animated programs are offered throughout the day starting at 10 a.m. People can find the complete schedule of planetarium shows and times on LBL’s website, www.lbl.org, under the “See and Do” tab.

Topics include:

· “The Little Star That Could” teaches how stars are formed.

· ”IBEX–Interstellar Boundary Explorer” joins scientists searching for the edge of the solar system.

· “Earth, Moon, and Sun” explores the relationship between the earth, moon, and sun while weaving in Native American traditional stories.
