What Makes STARLAB® Portable Planetariums Unique? The Starlab has been creating memories long before any other portable planetarium. First invented in the late 1970s, it has had a long and colorful history. With it, over a million students have gotten their first, and in many cases only, in depth look at a unspoiled night sky. The world has changed over the past 30 years, and so has the sky. Light pollution is now a problem for virtually every student or amateur astronomer. It is rare to find students, at any grade level, who have regularly seen the milky way with their own eyes.

The newly discovered Jovian moons, S/2016 J1 and S/2017 J1, are anything but large, barely 1-2 kilometers in size, which explains why these took so long. That brings the number of known Jupiter moons to a staggering 69.

A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s shadow falls on the Earth. The shadow comprises two concentric cones called the umbra and the penumbra. Within the smaller, central umbra, the Sun is completely blocked by the Moon, and anyone inside the umbra sees a total eclipse. To see the #GreatAmericanTotalEclipse you must be in the path, and inside that umbra!

If you have not read about the Starlab in Martha Stewart's Living, now is a chance to read about it in her blog.
Starlab "Planetarium shows are such a magical way to bring the mysteries of the universe to life."

Don't worry if you will not be in the path of the #AllAmericantotaleclipse. Everyone will see the eclipse, but it will look like a bite out of the sun!

Make sure to NOT look directly at the eclipse.

I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars. ― Neil deGrasse Tyson
