GO INSIDE: WORLD’S LARGEST MECHANICAL PLANETARIUM

MONICO – THROUGH THE LENS – Meet the man who set out to build a planetarium…in his own backyard. Frank Kovac was introduced to the wonders of space at an early age by his father. Since his childhood Frank dreamed of building a planetarium. If you’re wondering what exactly a planetarium is, Frank says it best, “it’s basically a theatre of the stars.”

Some planetariums rely on projectors to display the stars but Frank plotted and hand painted more than 5,000 stars with high quality glow in the dark paint. Construction on the planetarium took 10 years. Kovac’s Planetarium opened in 2007 and sees about 4,000 visitors a year.

VACATION GETAWAY

OUTERBANKS, NC – Classes are cancelled this week which can only mean one thing, SPRING BREAK! Temple students will be soaking in the rays at warm weather destinations like the one pictured above. You can’t see any in this picture, but the Outerbanks in North Carolina is home to nearly 100 wild mustang horses that freely roam the off terrain areas on the island. Here’s a story I did on location in the Outerbanks on those wild horses.
