If Patrick Moore has taught us anything (aside from his work on Gamesmaster… terrible business), it's that the night sky is a tremendously beautiful thing. However, thanks to the omnipresent orange fug that covers our major cities, seeing it clearly is a bit of a struggle for those of us who don't live in the countryside. Thankfully, the AstroEye Planetarium projector is on hand to show us not only the wonders of the night sky, but of whole constellations and star systems. It's sort of like being in 2001: A Space Odyssey, but without the psychotic computer and ballet music.
Simply pop this attractive spherical projector unit into its bowl-shaped holder, angle it up at the ceiling and turn it on. Immediately, you'll be awe-struck as over 8,000 stars gently revolve around the room. There are two slide discs for you to play with, one with all the constellations marked on it and one without, if you fancy a more natural experience. With a five-speed control, you can control the speed of the rotation too. It's even date-sensitive, meaning that you can see the subtle movements of the stars from day to day. Best of all, a press of a button will send a shooting star flying across your universe (though hopefully it won't be replicated in reality - there'll be meteors flying all over the place).
It obviously works best at night or in a darkened room (we tried it out under a desk with mixed results) and is therefore brilliant as an alternative to a night-light or lamp, or makes lovely mood lighting. With a sleep function that allows you to doze off without having to worry about turning it off.
Perfect for anyone wanting to learn about astrology, or those who want some interesting mood lighting, the AstroEye Planetarium crams the whole universe into your bedroom.

Flawless transaction, the AstroEye Planetarium is an excellent product. My mother was thrilled and it is very well priced compared with similar items. I'm in her good books for once!
I got the AstroEye Planetarium as a Christening present for my godson who's way too young to appreciate it yet. I took it for a spin to test it out and although the constellations were not in the exact positions relative to one another, the results were good! I'll make an Astrophysicist out of him yet!
I bought this item as a xmas present for my boyfriend who is quite into his astronomy but found that the projection quality is not what it looked like from the photos.
Don't get over excited with this AstroEye Planetarium, I'm very disappointed. You can create the same with a black piece of card, pin and a torch. The feel of the product is also very cheap and plastic. There is also no real purpose to the date setting because you see the same stars (holes) but the rotation starts from a different place. This product is not the product it appears to be.
I bought the AstroEye Planetarium as a special treat for my 6 and 7 year old children. They loved it and it's also educational which I liked. I was pleased with this product, but it's quite expensive.
I wasn't very impressed with this AstroEye Planetarium.
Bought the item after reading the other positive feedbacks saying how good it was. However, on using this item, I was very disappointed, as all that is displayed are white dots on disc 1 and some of these dots are joined up to display signs of the zodiac on disc 2? As the saying goes .. 'Fool and his money.......'
I'm warming to this AstroEye Planetarium. I have to say, the shooting star function is a joke. However it definitely gets you relaxed and puts you to sleep, which is great.
I bought this AstroEye Planetarium for my Grandad and he loved it! Very impressed with being able to set the date etc so he can see the stars as they would be at this time of year. A good present for any astrology buff.
I was struggling for an unusual present for my friend and came across this AstroEye Planetarium which I thought they'd love. It arrived promptly and was reasonably priced. I have tested it and now "I want one of those".
This is a really cool gadget, we were able to sit in the warm and watch the stars from the comfort of the sofa. It looks like one of the observation droids from Star Wars. Works well, really pleased.
This AstroEye Planetarium is awesome! I sold my own planetarium a while ago to a friend who desperately needed one so I ordered this one. Great value, this one even offers settings for a specific day and time to watch (my old one did not have this). The 2 supplied discs are very high detailed, I personally like the one with the constellations. I learn a lot from it and I can enjoy the constellations in my bedroom, even when it is cold or rainy outside. The shooting star option is really cool too!
I just brought this for my boyfriend who is, in the nicest way poosible, a nerd...and he absolutley LOVES IT...its amzing and because his room is all dark and gloomy for his gaming sessions...the stars really show up perfectly..plus it really addressed his problems falling asleep.. i would really recomend this to any one who wants a cool and quirky gift..
