Skydome is a  mobile planetarium which allows you to interact with the planets, stars, galaxies and other objects in our universe. The SkyDome visited our school on 7th October 2015. Everyone had a chance to experience the wonders of the cosmos without having to travel astronomical distances.

Some of the areas covered by Skydome:

  • Explore the planets of the Solar System and the moons of those planets.
  • See our galaxy, the Milky Way, in all its glory.
  • Get to grips with the scale of the planets, the stars and the universe.
  • View the night sky as it appears from Ireland or any part of the world.
  • See the constellations with perfect clarity.
  • Understand astronomy concepts quickly in a visual manner.
  • Make sense of the sky that you see every night.
  • Be able to locate stars and planets in the night sky.
  • Watch the moon, planets and stars rise, traverse the sky and set in seconds rather than hours.
  • See the stars better than if you were in the darkest part of the countryside with perfectly clear skies.
  • See the sky facing any point on the compass and directly above your head.
  • See how the spinning Earth makes the night sky rotate above your head.
  • Learn what parts of the sky are always visible and what parts are never visible from Ireland.
  • Learn why some stars and constellations rise and set over Irish skies and others do not.
