Real Star Planetarium

Crave the starry sky but live in the city? Build your own!


Product #: MKGK44

A small light bulb and a micro-perforated dodecahedron (we know, that's a mouthful... but a very cool shape) toss the northern hemisphere onto your walls with the Home Planetarium kit by Gakken.


Designed with records created by the Japanese space and aviation research institute to ensure high accuracy and a comprehensive collection of cosmic bodies, a calibrated ruler at the base that lets you change the display to match what you'd see in the sky in any given month.


Downloadable English instructions (all Gakken kits come in fully illustrated Japanese) suggest additional customizations, such as cutting the base off to turn the projector into a ceiling lamp or star globe (to place into a stand like a regular earth globe.)

  • Self-assembly pinhole home planetarium kit
