This new show by the Moscow Planetarium studio will become your “guiding star” in the world of astronavigation. Together with the curious son of an astronaut and his grandmother, you will discover an entire celestial map unfolding in the night sky. A map that has been guiding travellers since the earliest times.

A map that was used to help sailors navigate the seas and pioneers discover new continents. And it remains just as important now, with stars and constellations providing astronauts with directions in orbit.

So, how do you recognize the guiding celestial bodies and star paths? What treasures does the starry night sky hold? Where and why do we search for the North Star? How can you find the most well-known constellations quickly and easily? Our new fascinating star show about the secrets of astronavigation covers all these questions.

The “Guiding Stars” show will teach you practical skills to search for the most important navigation stars and constellations. And in the meantime, you will get the opportunity to reflect on our place beneath the starry sky.

No matter where we are, whether at home or far from home, the stars shine just as bright for each and every one of us. We are travellers, after all, moving through space on a giant beautiful spaceship called planet Earth.
The digital version, available to planetariums without an optical projector, has been created in 2022.
