Looking For A New Weekend Adventure? Try The Planetarium


Ever had even the slightest of interest in the stars and sky? If so, don’t be afraid to take advantage of your local planetarium. A planetarium is a fun way to learn about astronomy and the night sky from the comfort of a theater. They act as the world’s astronomy classrooms and theaters of public science education to billions of people all over the world. In an astronomy show, a projection of stars, planets, and other celestial objects appear on a large dome-shaped screen so it’s as if you’re looking up right into the actual night sky. In this room you will see the stars and objects move realistically how they would in real life. People come here to learn of all the constellations and the history behind each one. Experiencing a planetarium is something that everyone should do.

Each of the 50 US states as well as over 100 other countries has at least one planetarium in either a university, museum, or science center. Planetariums can be enjoyed at any age, no matter how young or old you are. It can help to nurture an interest in little ones to become an astronomer or it can help to inspire elders to come back with stories to tell their families and friends. The country is in need of astronomers – especially females, so if you or a child or a friend you know has even the slightest interest in stars and the sky, this is where you should be taking them.
