Working in a university town allows the extras in life, without the hustle & bustle of a city.

Ok, ok — Boulder is not NYC but still mighty nice to visit a planetarium — on a random Thursday night 🙂

CU’s Fiske Planetarium recently re-opened after a 10-month renovation project – so has been the talk around the office.  HD movies, laser shows – and live presentations too.  Purchased tickets to a live show titled ‘Colorado Skies’.

 “The naked eye can see about 6,000 stars.  Our new projector is so powerful that you can use binoculars inside the planetarium to see millions of stars and the beautiful Milky Way.”

I still maintain my starriest night ever was in Steamboat a few weeks back – 3 hour drive, 2 miles up a dirt road, snow camped after.  This night at Fiske Planetarium – 10 minutes away, blue comfy chair in a temperature-controlled building.

There’s room for both in my universe.  Highly recommended!
