Firmament

A 43' tall tower suspending a 10' high, 52' diameter dome of 21,600 LEDs, each individually controllable by an iPad app. Animated images of shooting stars, Hubble photos, aurora borealis, and various visions of heaven are displayed while classical music seals a soothing environment below.

Firmament is coming back to Burning Man in 2017, and will also be at the Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas in September. It need some refurbishment though. If you love Firmament, please consider supporting its return: http://igg.me/at/firmament2017
