According to Professor of the Department of Physics and Project Coordinator, Marcos César D’Anhone-Neves, the goal is to build Praça do Céu, located between the Dynamic Multidisciplinary Museum (Mudi) and the meteorological station, for “naked-eye” astronomical observation. With the use of telescopes, the new planetarium, whose dome is expected to be built with a diameter of seven meters, will accommodate up to 80 people and will have a digital display.

Proposal for the Praça do Céu plan

“It will be a scientific and tourism publishing center for the city of Maringa with the possibility of interweaving university courses at UEM and students from the public education network”, Danhoney comments.

UEM already owns the Circus Stellarium, located next to Building F-67, on the main campus. The current structure has a dome with a diameter of 6 meters and an analog projection.
