About Us

InsidePlanetarium

The TAMIU Lamar Bruni Vergara Planetarium is a one-of-a-kind teaching, learning, and special occasion space located on the campus of Texas A&M International University.  The planetarium is open to the public for shows, star-gazing events, field trips, and private functions; the Planetarium reflects TAMIU's commitment to service through educational engagement with the community.  The TAMIU planetarium is one of the most sophisticated planetariums in the State of Texas and operates a state-of-the-art digital projection system. This new technology allows not only a view from planet Earth, but from any part of the known universe as well; allowing us to take audiences to structures unseen, except to highly developed telescopes. The Digistar 3 projectors use powerful graphics hardware and software to generate immersive full-dome images on the interior surface of a dome, integrating all-dome video, real time 3D computer graphics, and a complete digital astronomy package.

Designed as a state-of-the-art 21st Century digital planetarium instrument, Digistar 3 is a fully integrated system that replaces the need for traditional planetarium equipment such as slide projectors, special effects projectors, slewable video projectors, etc.
