Planetarium On The Go has a semi-permanent fixed dome structure and seats for the spectators, making it a - unique in its kind - Digital Portable Planetarium. It's main feature is the fixed dome structure 6 meters in diameter with a high quality hemispherical projection area of 57 square meters!
By showing the fascinating discoveries in astronomy and space exploration, it both inspires and educates people of all ages about our surroundings - the Earth itself and our place in the Universe.
We travel to a school, museum, library, science center or any public place, even in the most remote locations, offering a high quality immersive educational experience. With Planetarium On The Go students are able to discover the mysteries of the universe without leaving their school.
Telescope observations: Along with the shows spectators can also observe through a telescope, the sun through a solar filter during the day and the night sky during the night, should the weather permits.
Capacity: Planetarium On The Go has 38 seats and can accommodate about 45 spectators in every show, with the excess spectators sitting in pillows. We can also accommodate people with disabilities and wheelchair users.
With 45 spectators per show, during school hours from 8:30 to 13:00 we can have 7 shows - every 40 minutes - with over 300 students participating. If the event continues until the evening we can serve about 700 spectators per day.
Planetarium shows: We have a wide range of digital full dome (360o) productions. You can find all the available shows, descriptions and trailers here: http://planetariumotg.gr/productions.html
