Alternatively you want to see the stars on a cloudy day or in air conditioned comfort, Adelaide has a planetarium on the first floor of Building P of the University of South Australia at the Mawson Lakes Campus. The planetarium is open to the public the first Saturday of every months at 2.45pm and other times by request. Click here for more details
The planetarium consists of a Zeiss Jena projector standing in the centre of a dome-shaped room with seating. The projector presents the relative positions and brightness of around 5,000 stars visible from the southern hemisphere. It's magical and belittling feeling.
