Every child dreams of blasting off to space at some point in their life. Whether it is to discover aliens, pilot a space shuttle, or be the first person to walk on a different planet, all kids get excited about the void of weightless and unlimited possibilities. How many hours did you spend gazing up at the stars, learning the constellations and names of planets in our solar system? Thanks to technology, the Celestron SkyScout Personal Planetarium will amaze your kids and help you relive fantasies long past.
This Personal Planetarium uses GPS to identify most of the popular celestial objects in the sky. Just point it toward a star and you’ll get its name, facts and mythology. How awesome is that?
The SkyScout has a built in backlit screen that displays information on the object you are viewing. One of the coolest features is that it helps you target most objects. You just select which object you want to view and then follow the onscreen arrows to locate it. It appears the SkyScout is only usable at night, I wouldn’t point this thing toward the sun if I were you.
The Skyscout includes expansion cards that fit into its SD card slot. This opens up a whole new world (intentional pun) for exploring the universe.
Here’s the official video.
