The Star Planetarium allows you to view stars and constellations any time in the comfort of your home. You can project hundreds of stars onto your walls and ceiling and see what the sky outside looks like on different days of the year. (Note: a 12' x 12' room works best.) First, set the date selector at the base of the unit to AUTUMN and listen to the audio tour. Then set the date and time and begin watching the star show. The light source is a very bright halogen bulb and the unit is accurate to season, month, day, and hour and a directional compass can be found at the base of the unit. This set includes the planetarium unit, spare light bulb, instruction manual, and learning poster. Not only is this a learning tool, but you can use it for a nightlight too. Requires 3 AA and 3 AAA batteries, not included.
Watch as stars and constellations are projected on your ceiling and walls. Discover the universe as you navigate through a 3-D virtual tour with the downloadable Stellarium astronomy software. It's like being in a real planetarium!
