Starry nights: Sky Scout Planetarium
Immortalized by Van Gogh, staring starry nights is a year-round and timeless pleasure, shared by the Greeks, Galileo, and even us. Planetariums use technology to help your eyes learn how to navigate and detect thousands of stars, planets, constellations, meteors, and more. While you could travel to a planetarium, we've discovered a portable planetarium that you can own.
The Sky Scout Planetarium is a handheld planetarium that reveals the many mysteries of the heavens no matter where an individual stands on this planet. Enjoy astronomy alone or entertain friends and family any day of the year and anywhere--from a rooftop in Manhattan to a beach in Bali.
The Sky Scout is about the size of a camcorder, weighs 16 oz., and includes a target button, intuitive menu navigation, identity function, locate function, GPS, LCD display, talking audio with earphones, SD car slot and USB connection.
Availailable at Amazon for $347.
