Let it be known
…that for the first time in my planetarium career, going on 5 years now, a visitor’s cell phone rang during a show.
First time it’s happened.
I’m lucky—thick cement walls, held up by big steel girders, and what is essentially a big aluminum cage surrounding the audience (the projection dome) means that people in the theater typically don’t get a signal, and though I include “please turn off your cell phones” in my intro spiel, phone ringtones during a show have never been a problem.
Until today. I think it may have been Axel F.
I’m hoping that there’s not a new tower that’s just come online nearby or something…
