Take a tour of the vastness of space at the Jordan Planetarium

ORONO The night sky has sparked the imaginations of philosophers, dreamers, scientists and explorers. Learning about the vastness of space is something that many people, young and old, leap at the chance to do. And you can, right in our own back yard.

"Being as small as we are and couched in the bosom of the University it can be difficult to get noticed," said Alan Davenport, the planetarium director and observatory coordinator at the University of Maine's Maynard F. Jordan Planetarium located at Wingate Hall. "The planetarium is quite old. It's been running for 30 years plus now. We've updated a lot of what's inside the planetarium, but it's difficult to go beyond a certain point."
