Absolutely out of this world experience, very well maintained and operated on a shoestring budget. This is a experience any astrologer must see, the presentation provided is top notch and the visual aids were beyond my expectations. At the end of our presentation the inside house lights are slowly lowered that reveal the stars in a large dome modeled after large fuel pod top. This is also a great place to bring a telescope and view the stars.
Kids loved the show, and the teachers outside with the telescopes were so kind and patient. Helped each child individually cant wait to go back!
