Few things in life are more awe-inspiring than a sky full of stars uninterrupted by clouds and light pollution. Of course, the nighttime outdoor lighting in your area means you might have to travel to fully see the nighttime stars in all their beauty. But what if you could enjoy that journey right from the comfort of home? That’s where galaxy projectors come in. Here’s where to buy a galaxy projector and what you should look for.
Where can you buy a galaxy projector?
You can buy a galaxy projector from a bunch of the big-name online shopping stores. You can also buy certain galaxy projectors directly from the companies that make them. Here’s a guide to where to buy a galaxy projector and how each source differs (even if just slightly) from the others.
On Amazon, you can buy a variety of galaxy projectors. Chances are you’ll see BlissLights such as the Sky Lite 2.0 among the most popular galaxy projector options on the ecommerce site. You might also see some of the other best star projectors like the BlissBulb on your search as well.
Sky Lite 2.0: Galaxy Projector (App Control)
Shine a galaxy of moving stars and a vibrant multicolor cloud.
As of 2021, BlissLights are the only galaxy projectors that Target sells. Target might also recommend some smaller-scale night lights, aurora lights, and star projectors. However, among products available at Target, only BlissLights simultaneously project nebulas and stars – in other words, full, unforgettable galaxies.
Walmart sells several galaxy projector models, including options with remote controls and mobile app compatibility. Its large number of choices resembles the variety of options available with Amazon. These options include BlissLights, which are among the options at Walmart with mobile app compatibility and remote control functions that make transporting to a new universe simple.
4. Urban Outfitters
Although Urban Outfitters may be best known for its clothes, the retailer sells plenty of home goods as well. Galaxy projectors are among these home goods. Urban Outfitters sells galaxy projectors from BlissLights and other brands, and it also sells aurora lights.
There are a number of advantages to buying your galaxy projector straight from BlissLights.com. First and foremost, every sale on our site comes with free shipping to the contiguous U.S., offering significant savings off the bat. Your purchase is backed by our one-year guarantee; if your product breaks or malfunctions, we’ll take it back and repair it or send you a replacement.
Where other websites may only carry one or two galaxy projectors, BlissLights offers an array of options that fit any room, occasion, and budget. Beyond the Sky Lite and the Sky Lite 2.0, you’ll find BlissBulbs that screw into any fixture, USB-powered portable star projectors, holiday lights, and many more options.

How much should you spend on a galaxy projector?
As you search the above websites for your favorite galaxy projector, you’ll see a diverse array of options and prices. You’ll be looking at the following average price ranges from each of the above retailers.
- Amazon: $29.99 - $99.97
- Target: $49.99 - $59.99
- Walmart: $8.99 - $49.99
- Urban Outfitters: $34.00 - $59.95
- BlissLights.com: $14.99 - $59.99
In most cases, the higher prices in these ranges correspond with higher-end galaxy projectors. However, price alone can’t tell you whether a galaxy projector is right for you.
What should you look for in a galaxy projector?
A galaxy projector worth spending money on should have the following features:
- High quality. Read other customers’ reviews to discern whether the galaxies the projector shines are lucid and bright or foggy and dull. Look for other quality markers such as energy efficiency, projection coverage area, and quietness – you wouldn’t want whirring machine noises interrupting your transcendence.
- Features. Many star projectors include auto shut-off timers, a handful of effects, and one dazzling star and nebula color. More advanced models come with a greater number of effects, customizable timers, several color options, and the ability to create and save your own effects. The most advanced models allow remote control and effects sharing via a mobile app. This way, you can easily create an immersive experience, enjoy it with others, and see how others like to transform their surroundings too.
- Color options. Some galaxy projectors only shine in one color. While that’s technically true -- laser lights can only shine in one color -- some galaxy projectors also show cloud-like floating nebulas that can change color. Look for a brand that offers the same model in several different star and nebula colors so you can light up your space in the colors that bring you joy. Better yet, choose a galaxy projector that includes multiple nebula colors to see your world in exactly the light you desire.
- Warranty. Strong warranty policies can help you out if something goes wrong with your projector. That’s why you should only buy projectors that offer repair or replacements for a certain period after purchase. This way, glitches and problems won’t interrupt your transformative experience, and you can quickly get back to enjoying your starry night sky.
- Ease of use. A stellar starry experience should come easy. Look for models that are hassle-free and simple to use. Whether that’s with clear instructions, simple button controls, or an intuitive app, accessibility and usability is key to a great galaxy projector.
