One of the best features of the portable planetarium is the ability to bring the show to you. The dome can be set up in your school or other indoor facility. It inflates easily and fits into most classrooms. Audiences need not travel (except through their imaginations). Stars on the Move handles the space travel. All you have to do is enter the dome.


Presentations use Powerpoint, internet resources from NASA and various observatories and, of course, a state of the art LED planetarium star projector to educate and inspire.

Shows meet academic standards for science education and have excellent success in teaching students from preschool to adult. Students and educators are guided on a tour of the current seasonal sky with emphasis on major constellations, planets and special astronomical events. Shows are live, interactive and personal so each show can be different and can incorporate star-related subjects other than science, such as math, creative writing, literature, geography and history.

Stars on the Move makes astronomy and Earth science fun!

It's great for students, scouts and adults.
