Andromeda Mobile Planetarium

A new planetarium service has opened in the Philippines, and it opened up in my home town - Baguio City.

Welcome the Andromeda Mobile Planetarium, a private business in partnership with Rizal Technological University's Department of Earth and Space Sciences that caters to students all over the Cordillera region. The planetarium features a 6 meter dome, and various exhibits such as a meteorite collection and images taken from John Nassr's Stardust Observatory in Baguio City.

The Andromeda Planetarium is temporarily set-up at the Porta Vaga mall to allow the public to come and visit. The dome will be circulating in the different schools in the region to promote awareness and interest in the science of astronomy.
