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 Mask 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 Masks fit over the other masks to isolate different important star groups or constellations to making learning and identifying easy. There’s a Constellation Mask for each season, plus one for the stars of the northern sky that never set. All constellation masks 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 masks. The Night Vision Saver helps you view the star maps in the Space Theater guide or change the masks in the dark while viewing your ceiling display. The kit includes a projector base, star dome, adapter ring, 5 constellation masks, sky mask, 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.

I don't understand why it runs on batteries, My son would like to use it as a night light but it goes through the batteries too quick for that! It is very cheaply made. I am returning it.

I am an astronomy nerd and I absolutely love this. The CD is so informative and the planetarium is pretty easy to set up.see moreof the reviewer's review

Waste of money, batteries weren't included which is not really that big of a deal but would have been nice to have since it's a gift. The problem was the 2 bulbs included burned out way too fast, didn't even last 5 minutes. The projected stars were nice and bright in a dim room and my son enjoyed it...see moreof the reviewer's review
