    Anyone been to a planetarium?

    Has anyone been to a planetarium? I remember going to one when I was lived in Virginia Beach. It's actually really cool. You get the see the stars from the inside of an auditorium. Most of them have educational programs about astronomy, and are very entertaining. It's also very realistic too.

    Anyone else been besides me?

    I have, when I was visiting some realtives in California. It was a great experience, I went there with one of my cousins and we were blown away. I've always felt a strong fascination for the universe and its stars. A visit to the planetarium is a good idea, specially if you take your kids with you, who knows... they might grow to love the universe, and maybe pursue a career in astrophysics

    I haven't heard of planetarium. Is it located in California or something? I am a big fan of astronomy, which I always like to read anything about it. I like the whole mysterious universe, which is made up a lot of starts and different planet. I would like to go to Planetarium someday, which I might just take my next vacation off in next summer. I would love to see how the universe is made up of.

    I've been to one in my home country many years back. They really are cool. When the auditorium darkens and the stars slowly appear, you feel like you've left your humdrum life behind and stepped into some place new. They have these programs dealings with astronomical issues, like how the universe came to be, or about black holes and supernovas. They're fascinating! If you haven't been to one yet I'd suggest you do. It'll be an experience worth your time.

    Planetariums can be pretty much anywhere. The one I went to was in Virginia. It is pretty cool. It's like staring at the stars and universe from an indoor seat. I think anyone interested in the stars should find one, and go!

    I've been to a couple of planetariums. They're really nice, I've been to one in India, one in New Zealand. It's great to just lean back and watch the stars and learn about constellations and about those fiery balls of gas that have been burning away for a few billion years. 10/10 I would recommend!

    Re: Anyone been to a planetarium?

    We had a planetarium in our high school in Michigan. I grew up with a love of the stars and star gazing. There are many desert areas in southern California where you can star gaze with the naked eye. There are also observatories (as opposed to Planetariums) that are worth seeing like Palomar in San Diego COunty (home of the Hale telescope) and Griffith Park in Los Angeles county.

    Re: Anyone been to a planetarium?

    I've been to a couple of planetariums in the northeast, but I don't know how they compare to others. I know one was just at a college, and probably much smaller than most, and one was at a science museum. The one at the science museum served multiple purposes, though. I was there at different times for the star shows they put on, but also for various "videos" they had shows for - almost of IMAX quality.

    I've been to several, here at home in Michigan, in Virginia, and most recently at the Smithsonian in Washington DC. It is always an interesting and educational experience, and a nice addition to any museum visit.

    I've been to several, here at home in Mich, in Va, and most lately at the Smithsonian in California DC. It is always an exciting and academic encounter, and a awesome inclusion to any art gallery check out.

    I actually had a planetarium in my high school. The guy that put on the shows was very well into his job. After the shows were done, he had everyone interested into the planets and much more. I really enjoyed the show much and I hope to take my kids to see one.

    The Planetarium is quite a new name for me and I am listening about it first time in my life. It seems really an interesting and attractive place and I will like to watch some images of it after that I will plan a tour of the destination. Will anyone like to share some images with me?
