The ISU Planetarium Presents: From Earth to the Universe
Saturday, July 8 at 12 noon, 2 PM, and 4 PM
Sunday, July 9 at 1 PM and 3 PM
The night sky, both beautiful and mysterious, has been the subject of campfire stories, ancient myths and awe for as long as there have been people. A desire to comprehend the Universe may well be humanity’s oldest shared intellectual experience. Yet only recently have we truly begun to grasp our place in the vast cosmos.
Now, experience this journey of celestial discovery. Travel from the world of the ancient Greek astronomers to today’s grandest telescopes. Then journey to the various worlds in the Solar System and experience the ferocity of the scorching Sun. “From Earth to the Universe” then leaves our home to take you to the colorful birthplaces and burial grounds of stars, and still further out, beyond the Milky Way, to the unimaginable immensity of the Universe.
This show, going on during the Sugar Creek Arts Festival, is free and open to the public.
