About the Planetarium

The UAA Planetarium and Visualization Theater offers an immersive full-dome experience with an all-digital definiti projector system made by Sky-Skan, Inc. Two Sony SXRD projectors illuminate the dome with over 12 million pixels, creating a razor-sharp image.  The dome is 10-meters (33 feet) in diameter and the theater has 62 seats (with tablet arms for notetaking) and three ADA spots.  The projector system can be operated in a "live" mode, enabling the operator to fly you through the Universe in real time.  We also offer full-dome movies on a variety of subjects.  (Please check our show listing to see which shows are currently being offered.)  The planetarium also has a Dolby 5.1 surround sound system with a subwoofer, for a seat-shaking experience.
