The Casper Planetarium was founded in 1966 and offers a variety of educational and entertainment programming about astronomy. When it opened, the planetarium had what was then a state-of-the-art projector called the art Spitz star machine. This operated until 2006, when it was decided, after the planetarium's 40th anniversary, that a new one was needed. The new Konica-Minolta Mediaglobe was installed soon after thanks the support of two education foundations. It was the world's first all dome, color, and single projector planetarium system.
