About Fiske Planetarium and Science Center
Fiske Planetarium and Science Center is located on the campus of the University of Colorado, in Boulder, Colorado.
First opened in 1971 from a generous donation from Wallace Franz Fiske (class of 1917), Boulder's own planetarium hosts a diverse range of star shows, star talks, laser shows, and special live events. Our planetarium's 20-meter diameter dome (the largest between Chicago and Los Angeles) was for many years home to one of the few Zeiss Mark VI Star Projectors, affectionately known as "Fritz," after the German engineer who oversaw its installation. In 2013, Fiske began a major systems upgrade, making it one of the most technically advanced theaters on planet Earth.
