Planetarium

The planetarium was designed to catch the viewers eyes both inside and out. After assuming responsibility for the operation of Longway Planetarium, Dean Clyde E. Blocker of Flint Junior College, in keeping with the wishes of the Board of Education and the Sponsors, constantly stressed the importance of the planetarium to the educational advancement of people of all ages within the community.
