Door County’s Stonecipher Astronomy Center brought the universe down to earth to visitors in three-dimensional detail. The center’s Astronomy Day included a 3D planetarium which projects computer-generated images of planets, stars and galaxies on a parabolic screen. Rick and Cory Heisler are just now getting into astronomy. The 3D system just adds to their enthusiasm.
While the weather put a damper on moon viewing, visitors got the chance to see the new telescope at the Leif Everson Observatory and imagine what might be in store for viewing on the next clear evening.
