FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- Science Central has its eyes on a new capital campaign to install the region's only public planetarium.

The project is expected to cost about $2 million and they are just over $1 million in pledges.

The planetarium will be a permanent exhibit at Science Central in an unused portion of the building.

Science Central will incorporate the original Starball from the University of Saint Francis and a modern digital system to show the sky from here on earth, as well as images from our solar system and beyond.

They expect the full project will take 1 to 2 years.
