Launceston Planetarium Information
See the stars at the Launceston Planetarium in the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, Tasmania. The Planetarium presents a variety of astronomy shows by projecting images of the southern night sky onto a domed ceiling, accompanied by additional effects and narration.
The Planetarium projector, the heart of the system, reproduces all of the stars visible to the unaided eye from the southern hemisphere, and simulates the apparent motion of the stars as the earth rotates. Each programme runs for 25 to 30 minutes, followed by a talk describing the current sights of the Tasmanian night sky, showing the positions of the planets and constellations.
A special feature is the solar telescope showing a fascinating live television picture of the Sun (on sunny days only, of course).
Show TImes are 3pm Tuesday to Friday and 2pm and 3pm Saturday.
