Mobile Planetarium

Mobile Planetarium

Our mobile planetarium was donated to Astronomy Live! through the generosity of our professors.

Our mobile planetarium is a large demo that requires a space 21' on a side and at least 10' in height. It cannot be used outdoors except in specific circumstances due to the effects of wind. We usually only use it in large auditoriums. Once students enter the inflatable dome, we can show them the same sort of night-sky projection that they would see in a normal planetarium. We point out certain constellations and discuss how the stars move across the sky. There is a separate attachment we can use for the projector to give a "Tour of the Solar System" show.
