Image Details:

The awesome side of the (very sadly) now closed planetarium at Santa Rosa Junior College.
"With a dome of 40 feet in diameter and 27 feet high and a capacity to seat 90, the Planetarium is one of the largest space science facilities in the California Community Colleges System. Each program contains spectacular visual effects due to the use of analog slides which provide superior image quality. "
"Due to the age of the facility, which has never undergone structural renovation, the college plans to perform a full assessment of the viability of the building and equipment. Potential plans for renovation will be considered following this assessment. The planetarium will remain closed until Summer 2019 at minimum. No date has been set to reopen the facility. "
