About this deal

The supplied remote control (which needs two AAA batteries, not included) can be used to operate the astronaut's features. You can adjust the brightness, turn the lasers on and off, and adjust the 'breathing' frequency of the lasers and nebula. You can switch the colors of the Nebula, change the speed of the Nebula's rotation and adjust the brightness of the lights. You can use the buttons on the device itself to operate some of the functions, but you'll need the remote to adjust the rotation speeds and to use the sleep timer, so don't lose it! The models that tend to be more affordable are those that give you an immersive experience, to give the feel of being somewhere other-worldly, and the colors and patterns are loosely 'inspired' by space — nebulas, auroras and galaxies. You've likely seen them at parties, in games rooms, in spas and so on. Most star projectors will have a sleep timer — we look for how many options for the sleep timer duration you have and whether it is effective and reliable.

There is one rotation speed which is slow and soothing — there's a little bit of noise from the motor but nothing that would be distracting, and better than many models we've tested. The 5-Watt LED projects pin-sharp images across the whole projection, from edge to edge. The operation is quiet, and there are three sleep timers for automatic shut-off. There's no remote, app control, or in-built speaker, but these aren't functions you'll need if all you're doing is selecting your desired disk and switching the projector on to gaze at the stars. For similar functionality, but with app control, the BlissLights Sky Lite 2.0 is worth looking at. Of course, you don't get the 'cute' astronaut figurine, but it might be more appropriate for an adult. The lights and lasers are marginally more impressive too. The astronaut's space helmet is where the laser and lights are projected from, and the head of the astronaut is rotatable, connected to the body with strong-ish magnets. This allows you to project the 'nebula' in almost any direction, filling the room with 'stars' (twinkling green lasers) and color or projecting onto a smaller surface area for a more vivid and focused light. Bliss Lights SkyLite 2.0, although superseded by the Evolve as mentioned above, is still an excellent star projector that features most of the same functionality, just not Google or Alexa voice control. It looks different because it is 'wheel-shaped' rather than spherical, but it slots nicely onto a bookshelf without taking up much space.

A non-scientific star projector that adds character and a whimsical ambiance to any room.

One of our highest-rated star projectors, earning a four-and-a-half star rating in our review, is the Aurora Borealis Northern Lights Galaxy Star Projector which we dubbed the 'best star projector for space parties'. One of the most surprising things about star projectors is perhaps just how versatile they are in 2023, with the range running the gamut from painstakingly detailed, planetarium-rivaling options that’ll make you feel like you’re lying outside, to more ambient-focused nightlights to help you sleep. The astronaut's head, which can be rotated 360° thanks to the magnetic attraction, allows the nebula to be projected anywhere without restriction. We were really impressed with the Orzorz Galaxy Night Light when we reviewed it recently. It easily rivals the Sega Homestar Flux in terms of image quality and functionality and comes at a fraction of the cost.

As you can see, the star projector in this model has been cleverly integrated into the body of a space-suit-wearing astronaut. The stand resembles the moon's surface with footprints, which is where the astronaut's feet slot into to keep the astronaut upright and stable.The Ambience Galaxy & Star Projector resembles a UFO shape and has a faceted dome to help disperse the LED over 180 degrees. After reviewing lots of star projectors, this is a unique design. The projected images are bright and clear even during the daytime. This was taken at midday indoors. (Image credit: Tantse Walter) The projections are clear and bright, and there are numerous color combinations to suit individual tastes (Image credit: Tantse Walter) Key specs: 17 total modes, nebula and laser effects, adjustable brightness settings, astronaut design, 360-degree rotatable head, rotating arm, adjustable projection angle, 45 and 90-minute timer.

The lights are bright and vivid, and there is a fair amount of customization, but you'll need to use the supplied remote to access some of the functions (rather than being able to access them using the buttons on the device). Other star projectors on this list, namely the Bliss Lights models, offer more color combinations, but there's more than enough here to entertain yourself and your children. The lights and lasers shine from the astronaut's space helmet. The astronaut's head attaches to the body with a pretty strong magnet. We like that it can be connected in almost any position. The head can't be lifted off with one hand, and it stays attached when you turn it upside down, making it feel strong and sturdy. You can also pose the little arms vertically into the position you want. If it's the ambiance of the nebulae patterns and colors that are more important to you than scientific accuracy, the Encalife Aurora Borealis Northern Lights Star Projector may be a good feature-rich alternative. This projector creates a non-scientific but realistic-looking Aurora that can be app controlled. You can personalize your experience by choosing from millions of color combinations. The projector also comes with an in-built speaker. The 'musical rhythm mode' can change the Aurora, stars and moons depending on whatever music is playing, ideal for creating an appropriate ambiance — for example, slow-moving patterns to accompany soothing bedtime sounds or fast-paced kitchen party mode — and it's surprisingly effective.The Astronaut Starry Sky Projector is a cost-effective way to add immediate ambiance to a room. Thanks to its novelty space-walking astronaut design, it would be the perfect gift for a young space fan. It's very easy to use, the lights are bright and customizable, the lasers will fill a small room, and the operation is quiet, all features that make for a good star projector. Though clearly not a scientific star projector, it would transform your gaming room, party atmosphere or sleeping environment. As the motor is very quiet — near silent, in fact, the motor noise won't be a distraction, allowing you to focus on the immersive and impressive light patterns. The spherical projector isn't fixed to the supplied base so gives maximum positioning flexibility. Point it at walls, ceilings and even the floor if you have high shelving, and you won't have a problem angling the Class 2 laser away from vulnerable eyes.
