PLANETARIUM SHOWS

 

 

At StarDome we know how important it is 
to inspire people of all ages

We want you to leave our shows with a feeling of inspiration, of knowledge and of wanting to know more

For children especially to have their questions answered in a way that they understand

The planetarium experience is one that people young and old alike will remember for many years.

StarDome presentations are tailored to your requirements. We are flexible in our approach and we are always willing to help and advise.

Presentation lengths vary between 20 minutes and 1 hour depending on the group and include the very latest news & images from around the world and beyond. All are presenter led, not just a recording or film.

Each theme is illustrated by utilizing MS Power Point 
with large images projected on to the dome 
with digital projection. 

The images will include the latest and best from NASA and Andrew's other world wide space sources.

We then embark on a journey of discovery with the planetarium show - the highlight of any dome presentation.

 

A sky which is always clear and free from any light pollution! 

The commentary is live no gimmicks required!

No taped voice-over presentations are used


We are confident in our subject knowledge

When the dome lights dim to a gasp from the audience we see 3000 stars appear in a perfect night sky free from light pollution.

We trace constellation patterns, find star clusters, galaxies and planets.

A whirling, dizzying spin then takes us to the North pole to find the North star , then back to our home and then to the Equator.

 

Maybe even time for a trip to Florida in the USA or down under to Australia to glimpse some of the southern stars & constellations including the Southern Cross.

StarLore - how other cultures interpreted the night sky, the Polynesians, the Africans, the aboriginal people, the Egyptians
