I had a chance to view a simulated night sky in National Museum Planetarium’s mobile planetarium on August 13, 2016. The planetarium is about 5 meters high (from floor to dome ceiling). It uses a fish eye lens mounted onto an LCD projector to display images of the sky.

Here are some photos taken during the virtual sky tour.

More than one hundred astronomy enthusiasts attended Manila Street Astronomer’s (MSA) lecture on July 17, 2016 at the National Museum Planetarium in Luneta, Manila, with the topic The Moon and How to Observe It. The lecture was held 47 years after man first set foot on the moon in July 1969!

I have recently come across what I would describe as the best low-cost (around 4 dollars) pinhole star projector that I have seen to date—a Kenko Star Roman star projector.
