Up Planetarium 
The planetarium shows the eight planets of the solar system, the Sun, and the Moon, as seen from any position on the Earth at any time. Three constellations are also shown as objects, the Big Dipper, the Southern Cross, and Orion, and the star Polaris. In addition to this the International Space Station, ISS, is shown. 
The orbit of the ISS is also shown around the Earth-globe in the middle of the planetarium. And there is a cone that indicates the locations on Earth that has the ISS above the horizon; the height of the cone accurately gives the height of the orbit to scale as compared to the Earth size. ISS sweeps over your head in a couple of minutes if your location is inside the cone.-The planetarium is updated once a minute, the time displayed is UTC i.e. Zulu/GMT time. The Julian Date, JD, as used by astronomers is also shown near the spike in the center.
