Planetarium Technician Resume

A Planetarium is a place where we get to witness the galaxy, milky way, stars, meteors, etc. Usually the universities have a planetarium and it runs programs at regular intervals for school students, civilians, for people studying astronomy, etc. A planetarium will have a theater wherein, on the big screen you get to see and learn about the stars and constellations. It also has telescopes and people get to see the stars, their movement, eclipses, etc., live with the help of these telescopes. Operating a planetarium is not a simple task.
