Isn't technology amazing? Certainly, it takes the talent of someone like Takayuki Ohira, the creator of the Megastar planetarium that made it into the Guinness Book of Records for being capable of projecting the highest number of stars in the world, to create something like the Homestar Midnight Navy Planetarium. But the end result is a compact 16 x 16.5 x 16.2 cm (6.2 x 6.5 x 6.3") sphere that can project up to 60,000 stars (including shooting stars) over a 2 m (6.5 ft) distance using just a single 1 W LED bulb!
What makes the Homestar Midnight Navy Planetarium stand out, though, is that for the first time in the Homestar series it features a plate that shows the starts twinkling. This creates a 3D effect that makes the image more realistic! To help you relax, it also includes six different natural sounds from the sea, mountains, and rivers as well as three healing pieces of music. Turn off the lights, turn the planetarium on, lie on your back, and enjoy a perfect vision of Japan's night sky!
