This portable planetarium projects 10,000 stars onto any ceiling and is not a toy but a genuine educational tool (slash conversation piece). It only needs a projection distance of about 10 feet, so it's quite practical, even in relatively confined quarters. Weighing in at less than three pounds, with a price tag just under $230 and featuring adjustable angles, the home planetarium is perfect for urban dwellers where light pollution robs you of stargazing opportunities.
