Grand Opening of this spectacular 10K 2D planetarium, in the North of France, this past weekend May 13th to 14th, 2023!

Orionis opened its doors to the public, revealing the powerful 10K 2D system we installed in the 15m dome, using 12 x 4K VPL-GTZ280 Sony projectors, along with our astronomical software SkyExplorer, and great planetarium equipment!

We are delighted and proud to be part of this fantastic project!

A majectic event was organized, with activities during the day and a show with 200 drones in the evening, welcoming over 11,000 visitors throughout the weekend !
