The National Geographic Planetarium is a globe of the night sky that projects the stars onto your walls and ceiling. The globe slowly revolves to show how the stars move across the night sky, and use the included pointer to locate constellations, it's your very own planetarium.
Whilst it will project against a ceiling in large rooms it is used to its best advantage placed against a single clear white wall. Children can highlight points of interest by using the LED light pointer, and they can learn about the stars in the accompanying manual. By listening to the commentary about the planets (they do not appear as part of the light show) your child can learn about them with the CyberSky CD.
The CD-Rom is a fun, educational programme that's packed with information and offers accurate charts which include stars, constellations, deep sky and solar system objects and other astronomical phenomena.
And then, when you have finished learning, it becomes a soothing night light, the stars on your ceiling as you drift off to sleep.
National Geographic Planetarium is a toy, and it's suitable for children aged 8 years and older. The required 6 AA batteries are not included.
