Schreder Planetarium presents
Summer Night Sky, New Horizons and Two Small Pieces of Glass
The Summer Night Sky: SEASONAL STARGAZING. In just a few minutes, find out more about "what's up tonight" than some people do in a lifetime! Hop through constellations, learn cool star names, and groove to planetarium space music in this fulldome audiovisual experience. New Horizons: From breathtaking landscapes to violent volcanic eruptions, to the sheer beauty of Saturn’s rings, explore the planets and moons of the solar system in a majestic journey through our celestial neighborhood. Travel down to the surface of all the planets and experience what life would be like on those brave new worlds. Our journey begins as we follow a comet as it travels through interplanetary space. On each of our exotic ports of call, real data and images from modern space probes are transformed into stunning 360° photo-realistic 3D animation. Two Small Pieces of Glass: This program was produced to engage and appeal to audiences of all ages, Two Small Pieces of Glass traces the history of the telescope from Galileo's modifications to a child's spyglass—using two small pieces of glass—to the launch of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and the future of astronomy. It explores the wonder and discovery made by astronomers throughout the last 400 years.
