Delta donates planetarium artifacts to Lodi museum


Delta College donated fossils and earth crust to Lodi World of Wonders “WOW” Museum in 2017.

The donations come from the closed Delta College Planetarium where the artifacts were on display.

The donations include a full size replica of a Tyrannosaurs Rex skull, an ancient alligator skull and a large wall-mounted mural of the earth’s crust.

Charlene Lauderdale, an artist and Stockton resident, created the earth crust mural “Genesis” for Delta’s Planetarium in 1986.

The two skull exhibit will be ready in 2-3 weeks. The mural exhibit is still in its planning stages.
