||Albert Einstein Planetarium
The Albert Einstein Planetarium includes a first-of-its-kind, Sky Vision™ dual digital projection system and six-channel digital surround sound.
The Zeiss Vla in the center of the Einstein Planetarium projects about 8,900 stars, along with the Sun, Moon, five naked-ey planets, Milky Way, Magellanic Clouds, and the few other nebulous celestial objects visible to the unaided eye. It automatically reproduces the phasing of the Moon and can demonstrate lunar and solar eclipses and the precession of Earth's axis.
