YOUR OWN PURPOSE-BUILT WINDOW ON THE UNIVERSE
Our portable planetarium
The Observatory owns its own a portable Emerald inflatable planetarium dome, within which we can project night sky imagery. Ideal for education. With a selection of sky-panoramic films and surround-sound audio, the planetarium is an exciting tool for bringing the night sky into the classroom as part of learning about cosmology or as preparatory introductory session prior to stargazing trip to the Observatory.
Planetarium hire terms
Because of the complex technical setup requirements; the need for supplementary equipment (laptop and audio); dome-compatible films; and high cost of insurance, we offer an all-inclusive Planetarium package that can be tailored to your audience.
The North Pennines Observatory is owned and operated by the North Pennines AONB Partnership
