Pop-up Planetarium Creates Worlds Of Fun

The Door Peninsula Astronomical Society has a new toy that has already proven a hit with kids. Their pop-up planetarium debuted this summer to different groups and President Dave Lenius says probably 800 kids have experienced it already. Lenius says a couple things stand out to the children, with Saturn's rings being the overall favorite.



The moons of Jupiter are also a source of wonder. The planetarium is operated via computer and can display high-definition images of our solar system to make it seem like you are spanning space. The Planetarium is a high-end model that uses only photographs, not artist renderings. It is about 5 meters across and 10 feet high, enough room for 25 kids or 15 adults.
