If you’re worried about taking your kids outside at night to stargaze because of the risk of asteroids, falling satellites and other space debris, you can now enjoy a considerably less awesome experience indoors. The Discovery Ultimate Star Planetarium will project 88 constellations and 12 celestial objects including the 8 planets, that outcast Pluto and its moon, Charon.
A backlit navigational screen allows you to search a database of over 600 star facts and myths, while an interactive talking computer will take you through a variety of astronomy tours and settings. It uses a couple of “super bright bulbs” to project over 600
dots stars and even has a one-hour timer so your kids can fall asleep under the constellations.
You can find it at the Discovery Channel online store for $79.95.
