The Buehler Planetarium & Observatory is located on a beautiful
tropical garden site at Broward Community College's Central Campus in
Davie, Florida. Surrounded by lovely palm trees, the planetarium was built
in 1965 through the generosity of the aviation pioneer Emil Buehler. In
thirty-five years the planetarium has presented planetarium shows and
astronomical programs to almost a million visitors. As a result of a
substantial gift from the Emil Buehler Trust, the planetarium was
completely renovated, and reopened in September 1988 with a Zeiss M1015
star projector and a sophisticated computerized automation system.
