Emil Buehler Planetarium Show
7 PM
Planetarium Show – Terra

In a seemingly limitless universe, only our planet, Terra, is known to harbor life. This full-dome video presentation examines what makes our five billion-year-old “third rock from the sun” so special. “Terra” takes visitors back to the very beginnings of the Earth, the massive impact that astronomers believed formed our moon and caused the separation of the first oceans from the continents. Visitors discover how the unique characteristics of Earth have made life on this planet possible, and how the planet has evolved and changed, a process that continues today. There may be billions of stars, but there is only one “Terra.”

8:30 PM
Planetarium Show – Two Degrees: Earth on the Edge
Two degrees Celsius. That increase to the average temperature of Earth is believed by climate scientists to be a “point of no return” – where the profound changes to our planet’s environment and atmosphere instigated by greenhouse gas emissions could prove irreversible. “Two Degrees” explores the science of climate change and global warming, from the coldest, deepest ravines of the Antarctic to the seashores of Florida, and across millions of years of Earth’s history.
