about jawahar lal nehru planetarium

One of the five planetariums in India, Jawahar Lal Nehru Planetarium was founded by Bengaluru City Corporation in 1989. Located on Sir.T Chowdaiah Road, it has been managed by the Bengaluru Association for Science Education (BASE) since 1992. The Planetarium features a 15.0 meters diameter dome with a seating capacity of 210. “Space Master”’ planetarium projector projects the night sky as seen with naked eye on the dome along with constellation pictures and panoramas. It is used for teaching astronomy as well. Apart from this, video projectors, slide projectors, special effect projectors, etc., are also used for the shows. 

The sky-theatre shows are very popular and attract about 2 lakh visitors every year at Jawahar Lal Nehru Planetarium. These blend science with literature, art and cultural aspects of many countries using special animation, visual effects and videos. The planetarium also has exhibition halls, and a science park. A special feature here is called 'Know Your Stars', which is a program conducted by ABAA on first Sunday of every month that includes lectures on constellations, Stars and planets, using of telescopes manned by amateur astronomers.
