Clever Planetarium and Earth Sciences Center
The George H. Clever Planetarium at San Joaquin Delta College provides a comprehensive series of space science and earth science education programs to school children from throughout the region and northern California. The Clever Planetarium features a Spitz 512 prime sky instrument nicknamed Herman, which projects the stars on a 33 foot aluminum dome and a Sci-Dome HD projector. This instrument can show the sky of any date, past, present or future, from any location on Earth. All the motions of the planet Earth can be simulated and accelerated so that days, years, centuries or a millennia can be made to pass before the viewer's eye in a matter of minutes.
