Mobile Planetarium

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.
