Our planetarium dome – the first fixed planetarium in Saarland

In November 2018, the space studio Nohfelden received a new attraction. With the help of THW Nohfelden, a new planetarium dome was installed. It can display the starry sky with all its diverse objects at any time and from any place in the world. Due to the 360° projection you have the impression that you are embedded in the scene. The planetarium tours are very suitable for a vivid journey through the firmament – even in bad weather. The software of a planetarium is suitable for various and entertaining presentations, where you can learn a lot of new things from the sky.

The planetarium is located in our (natural) barn. Therefore, it can only be operated in the warm season – usually between mid-April and the end of September. During other times, however, we can show the starry sky on a canvas.

The complicated construction of the planetarium dome was only possible with the help of THW Nohfelden. Many thanks to all helpers! Below a gallery of the extensive construction:
