Description (Brief)

Let the mysteries unfold before your own eyes as you glimpse back in time. A time machine so vast with boundaries opened by your imagination. A story so captivating with sights so splendid that it takes your breath away.

Watch your own ZODIAC SIGN as your BIRTHDAY STAR twinkles in the night sky. Wander with the CONSTELLATIONS that roam the celestial sphere. Feast your eyes on SATURN encircled by the rings. Marvel at JUPITER’s rotation as its Moons dance round it. Glimpse at our very own Galaxy, the MILKY WAY along with its cousins. Visit NEBULAS, the nursery of young stars and watch them grow in crèches, the STAR CLUSTERS. Thrill yourself to the mysteries of BLACK HOLES as you wish under the SHOOTING STARS. May be a COMET will grant your wish! Walk on the MOON & see where the first man placed his foot amongst the craters. Be an astronaut as you watch the INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION & artificial SATELLITES zoom in the black sky. Notice the SHADOW of EARTH & its EARTHSHINE. Feel the magic of VENUS & MERCURY as they weave the heavenly fabric along with MARS.

Enjoy as a TELESCOPE magnifies the fun & helps you in your discoveries.
