BROOKLYN - A newly renovated planetarium has opened inside Edward R. Murrow High School

The planetarium first opened in 1979, but closed about three years ago for renovations.

Councilman Dominic Recchia's office secured more than $600,000 in funding for the project while he was in office.

The planetarium features state-of-the-art technology and seating for 38 people.

The school paired up with the Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History to use its data bank called "Digital Universe."

The planetarium will be open during school days.  Eventually, the school may set up tours and bring in other local students from different schools to enjoy it.
