We are often booked by teachers, group leaders and event organisers who are looking for a star dome or Astronomy stage show experience. To Add the WOW factor to their event!
How will the dome be set up?
Auriga Astronomy will arrange with the teacher, deciding type of show, duration and content suitability.
The Auriga Star Dome can be booked for either a morning, afternoon or full days depending on the needs of the school or organisation.
Typically a group will come along to the hall where the planetarium has been set up. Dave our presenter will introduce the show and explain what will happen. Then the group are taken inside the Auriga Star Dome where the images are projected onto a 4m wide section of the dome, creating and IMAX like experience.
The incredible visual effects combined with the sound effects ensure that each visitor is taken on a wonderful learning journey.
