Last week, the Fiske Planetarium in Boulder debuted new technology that shows the night sky in striking detail. While the old system projected 6,000 stars, a combination of new digital projectors and a state-of-the-art "star ball" now shows 20 million stars. They even twinkle, and many are so small you need binoculars to see them. Astronomer Doug Duncan, director of the Fiske Planetarium, joins Ryan Warner.
