|Association of Mexican Planetariums (AMPAC)|
Any planetarium in Mexico may apply for AMPAC membership and so far, according to our records and the IPS Planetarium Directory, there are 42 planetariums in Mexico, small to large, including portables.
Recent projects:Sponsored the International Planetarium Festivals III and IV at the Descubre Science & Technology Centre and Planetarium in Aguascalientes and at the Luis E. Erro Planetarium in Mexico City, thanks to the sponsoring of the National Science and Technology Council in Mexico and the collaboration of planetarium equipment vendors, with the initiative to foster the diffusion of state-of-the-art planetarium technology and its proper use, and to invite foreign guests from top planetariums in the US, Europe and South America to share their knowledge and experiences. 2017
Mexico´s first dome film, Mayan Archaeoastronomy: Observers of the Universe, has been produced by Milagros Varguez from the Cozumel Planetarium. It is available in Spanish, English, Portuguese, and Chinese. International collaboration was provided by European Southern Observatory (ESO) in the 3D animation video making. Hopefully it will serve as an example of collaboration for the making of future dome videos. 2017
