Stargazers in Sunset Beach now have some new hi-tech equipment to help them learn about the cosmos.

The planetarium had four shows on its opening day.

Executive Director Scott Kucera said, ”We have two primary audiences which are students and teachers who are doing classroom extensions. We have curriculum-based programs. The other audience is residents and tourists with families.”

About 30,000 people visit the Ingram Planetarium each year.
