Weekly Interviews Davenport About Emera Astronomy Center Opening

The Weekly spoke with Alan Davenport, director of Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium at the University of Maine, about the university’s new Emera Astronomy Center that is slated to open this fall. The $5.2 million astronomy center will be the new home of the Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium and Observatory. The center will feature a planetarium dome 33 feet in diameter — the largest in the state — equipped with a state-of-the-art projection system. The new observatory’s 20-inch digital telescope also will be the largest in Maine. Davenport said the new facility is “quantum leaps beyond what we’ve had and been able to do before.”
