Old Tales of Nevada – Past and Present Video Series
Dan Ruby, Director of the Fleischmann Planetarium

This month Neal’s guest speaker will be Dan Ruby, director for the Fleischmann Planetarium.

Fleischmann Planetarium is part of the University of Nevada, Reno and Extended Studies. Open to the public, they offer daily digital planetarium shows in their dome theater, field trips, and educational outreach in earth and space science. In addition they offer observatory viewing at the Redfield Campus of the University of Nevada. Built in 1963 and originally called the “Fleischmann Atmospherium-Planetarium,” they were the first planetarium in the world to project full-dome movies of time-lapse clouds and weather phenomena.

As always, after the program, Neal will answer questions from the audience.

Admission is $5 for adults; free for children 17 and younger and for Nevada Historical Society members. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early as seating is limited. For details, call 688-1190.
