I visited my first planetarium at age 10, in Cincinnati, Ohio.  I went several times that year, and fell in love with the concept.  It seemed magical to me, to be able to capture the night sky and bring it indoors to be enjoyed during the day.

Now I teach astronomy at a college that has a planetarium, and get to run it when the regular guy is on vacation.

I still love the magic of it.  My favorite shows are the children's shows...I love hearing and seeing them after they watch "The Secret of the Cardboard Rocket".
