Alden Digital Planetarium

In 2007, the Alden Digital Planetarium became the first of its kind in Massachusetts. Featuring Digital Light Processing technology from Sky-Skan, Inc., the EcoTarium's planetarium uses images from NASA and the Hubble Space Telescope to create a three-dimensional solar system projected onto a 40-foot dome. With immersive surround sound technology from Bose, the planetarium offers a 360-degree, multi-sensory experience. Even more exciting, this is one of less than 10 planetariums that operate in partnership with National Geographic!

Planetarium Lesson Plan

FUN FACTS

Earth has more exposed water than land.  Three quarters of the Earth is covered by water! The earth has one moon.

Venus is the brightest planet in our sky and can sometimes be seen with the naked eye if you know where to look.  It is the solar system’s brightest planet — yellow clouds of sulfuric acid reflect the sun’s light.

Jupiter is so big that you could fit all the other planets in the solar system inside it.

Pluto is no longer considered a planet — instead, astronomers call it a dwarf planet or planetoid.
