Are you ready to blast off?

Take your children on a 45-minute journey through the universe.  Sky Dome Planetarium is a portable, inflatable planetarium that will come right to Williamsport and dazzle your budding astronomers as they are taken on a tour of the solar system.

Summer readers will enter the dome and be introduced to a "star filled" sky. The navigator, with the use of a digital planetarium projector and a laser pointer, will guide students through the stars of the Northern Hemisphere exactly as they appear on the day of the presentation.

Summer readers will learn how to identify every planet in our solar system in dramatic "flights" towards each world. They'll be introduced to Greek mythological characters and see how these heroes of the past can be found in the stars. Children will witness the night sky in different seasons and from different global perspectives. 

The presentations are tailored for age groups from Kindergarten to middle-school and will provide academic content. The dome is also handicapped-accessible.
