Recent Past Events

Come, Sit, Stay! Join the Superpower Dogs Pack!

Superpower Dogs arrived at our Planetarium on Friday, November 29, with excellent reviews from our guests at the two launch shows. We were joined by Dr. Maria Gray and Angel, her 150 lb. Newfoundland. They trained intensively for nearly five years with the SICS (the Squola Italiana Cani Salvataggio) dogs who are featured in the movie and Angel is the ONLY American certified SICS dog! Dr. Gray is the founder of The American Academy of Canine Water Rescue, whose mission is to help eliminate unintentional drowning deaths by providing education to communities and organizations throughout the USA. They facilitate local law enforcement and military organizations, such as the United States Coast Guard, in conducting water rescues.

国产偷拍视频Our other guests were Laurel Prudhomme and Labrador retriever, Ludwig, who is training to be a service dog with Canine Companions for Independence, a nonprofit organization that provides assistance dogs free of charge to adults, children and veterans with disabilities. Ludwig enjoyed meeting all of the children at this event and happily posed for photographs throughout the morning.

Directions

To reach the Planetarium, leave Interstate 25 at exit 156 and enter the U.S. Air Force Academy through the North Gate, which is open to visitors from 5:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day. You will need your driver’s license or military ID and proof of vehicle insurance to enter the base. Please be prepared for potential security measures such as vehicle inspections.

Once on base, continue driving straight on Academy Drive for 4 miles and then turn left to park in the visitor lot for Arnold Hall and the Cadet Chapel. For an interactive campus map, click here国产偷拍视频. To the north of the visitor parking, there’s a building with a white dome – that’s the Planetarium! Please follow the steps to the front door or use the winding path to the left of the steps for handicapped access.
