The Scientific Explorer Space Theater Planetarium is a fun tool to introduce you to the wonders of the night sky. The set includes a projector base that houses your light source; 2 LED lightbulbs, which require 2 C batteries (not included). The Star Dome is held in place with an adapter ring and has hundreds of small holes that each project the image of a single star. The Sky Covers is a second dome to project stars that are only visible in the night sky on a particular date and time. The 5 other Constellation Covers fit over the other covers to isolate different important star groups or constellations to make learning and identifying easy. There’s a Constellation Cover for each season, plus one for the stars of the northern sky that never set. All constellation covers can be adjusted to the different location of stars at different dates and times. The Space Theater audio CD mixes amazing scientific facts with ancient stories about the stars and constellations and comes with directions on how to use the constellation covers. The Night Vision Saver helps you view the star maps in the Space Theater guide or change the covers in the dark while viewing your ceiling display. The kit includes a projector base, star dome, adapter ring, 5 constellation covers, sky cover, audio CD, night vision saver, 2 LED bulbs (which are stored in the battery compartment the first time you unpack the set) and a 32-page science manual. Recommended for children 8 years of age and older.
