Event Details

“Seeing” is a photon’s journey across space, time, and the mind. Humanity has discovered the science, technology and medicine that allows us to understand how sight works, cure diseases of the eye, and correct vision.

“Losing the Dark” is about how our starry skies are vanishing because light pollution is washing away our view of the cosmos. It not only threatens astronomy, but also disrupts wildlife and affects human health. The glows over cities and towns, seen so clearly from space, are testament to the billions of dollars spent in wasted energy by lighting up the sky.

Both films will be shown in our full dome digital planetarium.
