More than 50 years after it first opened, Bangkok’s Science Centre for Education – or the Planetarium as it was formerly known – recently underwent eight months of renovations, opening its doors wide again to moonwalkers, both young and old, just in time for National Children’s Day.

Billing itself as Thailand’s most advanced planetarium and equipped with a single, multipurpose 4K Digistar 5 system from the US, the venue celebrated its return with the screening of the award-winning documentary, “Experience the Aurora” by the leading American company Evans & Sutherland.
