Captain Starlight’s LIGHT ROCKET has landed!

Every day Captain Starlight travels in a rocket ship from Planet Starlight to every major children’s hospital in Australia to brighten the lives of seriously ill children by replacing fear and stress with joy and laughter.

Captain Starlight’s LIGHT ROCKET has landed at Vivid Light to bring some of the joy and laughter that the Starlight Children’s Foundation brings to kids all over Australia.

Rising 15 metres into the air the LIGHT ROCKET glows from within and is docked with its accompanying light tower. Cloaked in a translucent skin, low energy LED lighting lights the rocket from within and the light tower spotlights its body with roving beams. And from its nose cone, a laser light beam shoots into the sky lighting up the path to its next hospital location to visit.

As you enter the base of the rocket you enter another world – a giant 15 metre tall kaleidoscope which you and your whole family can experience together, with light, mirrors and sound. And while you are enjoying Captain Starlight’s LIGHT ROCKET, find out about the work that the team does around Australia brightening the lives of some very deserving children. And if you want to take some of Captain Starlight’s sparkle and wonder with you, purchase a Starlight Wand and make a very worthy and appreciated contribution to supporting seriously ill children and their families all across Australia
