LARAMIE – It’s a brand-new show for 2019! Rock out with the Laser Red Hot Chili Peppers under the planetarium dome with psychedelic visuals bumping with the music.

Bradon Bryngleson, a presenter with the Planetarium on the University of Wyoming campus, said the new program, set for Saturday, July 27, from

8 to 9 p.m., will be presented at the University of Wyoming’s Harry C. Vaughn Planetarium, 1000 E. Ivinson Ave. in Laramie.

“The laser shows are a recent combination that we’ve recently started. Most planetariums have a laser show, with music and a light show that projects from the back to create shapes, in sync with the music. The shows will run every other Saturday,” said Bryngleson.

“We’re trying to get fun music. So far, we have Laser red Hot Chili Peppers this month, in August it will be Laser Metallica. September will be Laser Queen. And for October, we’re planning a little fun-themed music.”
