Leap Day Show – Atlas of a Changing Earth

February 29 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Celebrate your leap year bonus day with us! We’ll learn about the history of leap years, how they are determined, and screen the planetarium show ‘Atlas of a Changing Earth’.

Atlas of a Changing Earth: This is the story of how a revolution in one of the most basic of all human enterprises – the making of maps – is shedding new light on our planet’s evolution in the wake of rising global temperatures. Using stunning, latest-generation imagery from space, “Atlas of a Changing Earth” takes viewers into the dynamic processes causing coastal glaciers in Greenland and Antarctica to melt, and explores how rising seas could threaten coastlines the world over. These striking new images are produced by the confluence of satellites and supercomputers, revealing Earth in a degree of precise detail scarcely imagined a generation ago.
