Many rare astronomical phenomena, such as solar eclipse, lunar eclipse, comet, meteor shower and so on, can be reproduced and predicted in the ball theater. Astronomers can also demonstrate planetary motion, astronomical coordinates, constellation graphics, bright stars, nebulae, clusters, galaxies and galaxies according to teaching requirements.
