History of the Moscow Star House

If you want to see the stars on a bright sunny day, you need to go down to the bottom of a deep well. And when the sky is overcast, the only way to see the stars is to get on a plane and fly over the cloud cover. If you want to see one of the most beautiful constellations – the Southern Cross – and you happen to live in the northern hemisphere, you'll have to go south of the equator. The sun and the stars can only be seen at the same time from a spacecraft...
The next approach by Halley's Comet to Earth will be in 2060. The next solar eclipse over European Russia will only be enjoyed by our distant descendants in 2126. And only in the 28th century will the people of Earth once again get to see Donati's Comet, one of the brightest comets of the 19th century.
But the good news is that you can see all of these celestial phenomena any day you like under the artificial sky of the Moscow Planetarium. How is this possible? The planetarium's history has been a fascinating journey through hardships to the stars.

The dome of the Moscow Planetarium with a diameter of 25 metres is one of the largest in Europe. The Planetarium ranks among the 10 most visited science education and museum complexes in Moscow and has been repeatedly called the best sightseeing venue in the capital. Three thousand people come here daily to see the stars, and this figure reaches one million per year.
This is the only science education complex on the planet, which has a classic and an interactive museum, two observatories, an open astronomical platform, a 4D cinema and two star rooms.
