Hey there! I know this beloved site closed over a year ago, but does anyone know what happened to Frank and the Planetarium? Did he end up selling the property? This is one of my all-time favorite places in the Atlas and I was devastated when I found out it closed.

Hi Erin, Hoping to reopen the planetarium in the summer of 2020. Would need to work around my full time shift work at a local Papermill. Thanks for your nice email! Frank
