The Fleischmann Atmospherium Planetarium was built in 1963[1] on the University of Nevada, Reno campus. It was the first planetarium in the United States to feature a 360-degree projector capable of providing horizon-to-horizon images and through time-lapse photography showing an entire day's weather in a few minutes.

Currently it offers public star shows.[2]

The planetarium's uniquely shaped building, a hyperbolic paraboloid, was designed by famed Reno architect Raymond M. Hellmann and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
