About Us: The GCC Planetarium is an all digital (computer driven) full dome theater, developed by Sky-Skan®, Inc. with:
Both 2D and 3D "live" digital star fields using DigitalSky 2® and Digital Universe 2®.
- Full-dome video or "movies" are presented via SkyVision®.
- Plus, a fully computer controlled 5.1 surround sound system and automated high intensity LED lighting.
- We present all of our shows on a custom built 30 foot diameter dome.
- We seat 48 patrons in power reclinable seats built by Recaro.
- For a personal touch, all shows are presented by a live narrator allowing audience Q&A.
- Our basic shows up to 55 minutes, but longer shows are available by special request.
- Guided photo tour of our dome available.
Calendar: We have a busy fall scheduled planned, with college classes (shown below, in blue), GCC Science Center Outreach school group field trips (green) and public events (red). Please click on the individual event for more details.
See you under the stars!
The planetarium team.
