The University of Colorado’s new Fiske Planetarium fully surrounds audiences with a 65 foot diameter screen, dazzling visuals, and fantastic sound. The theater is similar to an IMAX experience, except that you are fully surrounded, and the image is equal to 40 Blu-ray players all playing at once! The new star machine, which looks like R2-D2, shows 20 million stars and the Milky Way, the most beautiful indoor sky ever. Late-night laser shows are also offered with our new state-of-the-art laser system. Parking is convenient at the University lots which are free after 5:00pm weekdays and free during the weekends. Metered parking is available weekends from 8:00am to 5:00pm and is free after 5:00pm.
