Davenport Talks to Media at Astronomy Center Beam Signing

Alan Davenport, director of Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium, spoke with the Bangor Daily News, WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) at a beam signing and raising at the future home of the Emera Astronomy Center, a $5.2 million observatory and planetarium being built on the University of Maine campus. More than 50 children from the Old Town and Orono recreation departments signed a beam that was then raised in place on top of the structure. Davenport said the new facility will be a frequent stop for student groups and the new planetarium projectors will allow visitors to “fly” through different parts of the universe.
