Join us for a live star show where you will learn about the science of solar eclipses and how to safely view the upcoming partial solar eclipse on Saturday October 14. We will screen the animated children’s film ‘Beyond the Sun: In search of a new Earth’ and observe the Sun with a solar telescope following the show (if weather permits). Each ticket purchase comes with one pair of eclipse glasses.
Beyond the Sun: In search of a new Earth – Celeste is a little girl who wants to explore the Universe, find new Earths and learn how to find exoplanets. While fighting off sleep in her room by reading a book on astronomy, she receives an unexpected visit from Moon. Together, they enjoy a journey through the Universe to discover what exoplanets are and how they can be detected. They observe rogue planets, oceanic worlds and super-Earths. Moon tells her about exoplanet hunters, who observe the sky in search of planets like Earth. Many adventures are yet to come. But first, she needs some rest. Celeste drops off to sleep waiting for the next visit of Moon.
