DANVILLE, Va. -

A shining dome now tops the new Danville Science Center. The dome was lifted into position Thursday morning. It was constructed nearby at ground level.

The 44 foot dome theater will be a key piece of the new facility. It will be able to accommodate up to 100 people for environmental science and astronomy presentations.

Officials say the entire project is on track to be complete by the end of the year.
