Restoring A Planetarium In Hollidaysburg

Feb 9, 2017

Hollidaysburg Area High Shool is one of a few hundred schools in the U.S. with their own planetarium, built during the space race in the 1960's. But the vintage projector, which worked its magic mechanically, no longer works. WPSU's Kristine Allen reports on a fundraising effort to bring the old planetarium into the 21st century. 

View the slide show above for photos of the planetarium and murals.  

Hollidaysburg Area High School will hold a Save The Planetarium concert and silent auction Friday, Feb. 10.  Details here: http://radio.wpsu.org/community-calendar/event/87762
