Fiske Planetarium and Science Center

Fiske is one of the largest planetariums in the U.S. with a 65-foot diameter dome. Our 8K Sky-Skan system, MegaStar projector (which shows 10 million stars), cutting-edge content, dazzling visuals, and a fantastic sound system all work together to create a fully immersive 360-degree experience.

Our fulldome films, star talks, live talks, laser fantasy and liquid sky music shows, concerts, and theatrical productions are unforgettable! We also host large public gatherings during celestial events and NASA-related launches/landings.

Fiske opened in 1975 with a generous donation from Wallace Franz Fiske (class of 1917) and is within CU's College of Arts & Sciences, Astrophysical & Planetary Sciences Department.
