WABI, WVII Report on Planetarium’s Closing in Advance of New Center’s Opening

The University of Maine’s Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium in Wingate Hall will hold its final show April 27, WABI (Channel 5) and WVII (Channel 7) reported. The planetarium, which has been open to students and the public since 1954, will close its doors as the university prepares to open the new Emera Astronomy Center in the fall. Alan Davenport, the planetarium’s director, said the old projection system has served the community well, teaching thousands of children and other visitors about astronomy, but the new technology at the Emera Astronomy Center will allow visitors to experience more than ever before.
