Did you know that it took 31 lenses to work the very first planetarium built in the US!? That was back in the 30s! Imagine the kind of technology today! Do people think this is supposed to be comparable? Pfft.
This mini planetarium is perfect for a fan of the solar system. I'm 28, and this was a gift I received from a loved one. So you don't have to be a child to enjoy this.
No, it's not an accurate representation of stars, but this is a beautiful substitute. The light has a bluish tint, so the ambience is perfect for someone trying to sleep. There's something really comforting about the lights. I feel relaxed, soothed and clear-minded when I turn this on before I sleep. When I have a long or particularly rough day, this product makes me happy. It comes with slides, so you can swap out different images to add to the projection of stars. I chuckle a little each time I use the astronaut or satellite images because they are just cute. It's hard to describe the tranquility that this provides. It's more like something you just have to experience.
If your goal is to see realistic projections, then I suggest spending more money on the more advanced versions. Or, if you're not exactly rolling in the dough, just buy the glow in the dark stars to stick to your ceiling for the additional starry effect.
I recommend this product because I think it's worth the price (even though mine was gifted to me) and it's a comforting sort of night light that encourages interests in outer space.
