Star Dome has entertained, educated and inspired over 60,000 children and adults across southern Manitoba!

 

Travel to different parts of the Earth and see the sky from the perspective of other cultures or other ages. Jump off the Earth and see what makes the seasons and the phases of the moon. Continue your journey for a full tour of the solar system, including Jupiter’s moons and the rings of Saturn. You can keep going and see the sights of our galaxy. Visit stellar nurseries, jewel-like clusters of stars and debris from the violent death of massive stars. Step outside our familiar Milky Way and into the realm of other galaxies to visit these vast and majestic cities of stars.


The heart of Star Dome is a multimedia computer projection system that can not only simulate the sky at any time and place, but can zoom in on any object in the sky. Combine this system with a large portable domed theatre and the possibilities for fun and education become limitless.

Unlike older portable planetariums that use a light shining through a cylinder on a mechanical stand, Star Dome uses a state of the art computer projection system. Stars and planets appear life-like and the system can simulate an incredibly realistic sense of motion - like you are actually flying through space.
