John C. Wells Planetarium at James Madison University

The John C. Wells Planetarium at James Madison University is a state-of-the-art hybrid facility, the only one of its kind in the world. It hosts both an Evans & Sutherland Digistar 5, an ultra-high resolution digital projection system, and a Goto Chronos opto-mechanical star projector that provides visitors with a superior and realistic night sky. This digital system allows for presentations of unique full dome movies as well as projections of the multi-wavelength universe on the dome. This Goto Chronos starball allows the planetarium to project an authentic night sky for any location on the Earth’s surface.
