Macquarie University Planetarium

 

Their Digitarium Epsilon planetarium projector system and portable 7m GoDome is available, by arrangement, for groups of up to 50 people per session. The planetarium simulates the night sky, including special events such as the transit of Venus or an eclipse of the sun. It allows an up-close look at the motions of celestial objects, the surfaces of planets, deep sky objects, and constellations. You can take a tour of the local Solar System, peer into the depths of the galaxy, or watch amazing new planetarium movies. Presentations can be tailored to the interests and age of your groups.
