The Rancho Mirage Observatory opened on March 25, 2018, and since then has provided thousands of residents and visitors the opportunity to connect with the cosmos. In the spirit of perpetually improving our program offerings, we recently installed a new feature that can be enjoyed day or night, no matter the weather. The Integrated Space Theater system is a collection of seven projectors, four speakers, one subwoofer, and hours of creative design that come together to display short, visually gorgeous astronomical films on the inside of the Observatory’s closed dome. And this is only just the beginning: the system also allows a real-time customized journey through outer space led by one of our experts. You can rest assured that the system in no way interferes with the performance of the CDK700 telescope now or in the future. We look forward to introducing you to the Integrated Space Theater during your next visit to the Observatory!
