BC Planetarium to see "Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine"

Anyone want to join me in going to the BC Planetarium to see "Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine"  on Thursday evening, February 20th from 7:30 to 8:30 PM at the William M Thomas Planetarium. Description below. Tickets go on sale next Thursday January 23rd. I understand these shows sell out. You can purchase your tickets by following the link below or at BC college ticket office.

Doors will open 30 minutes before the show starts for seating and will be closed during the one-hour program with no late admittance. Tickets are available for $6.50/adults and $4.50/seniors and children 5-12 years old from the Bakersfield College Ticket Office only (tickets will NOT be sold at the door) starting January 23rd. The BC Ticket Office is in Business Services [masked]) and the William M Thomas Planetarium is on the second floor, northwest end of the Math-Science Building, Room 112

The one-hour show will begin with a short tour of the evening sky using the planetarium's Goto Chronos star projector followed by the 24-minute all-dome presentation from Denver Museum of Natural Science called "Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine" using our Spitz SciDome projector. Dynamic Earth, narrated by Liam Neeson, explores the inner workings of Earth's climate system. With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. Audiences will ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes. [A visualization (as opposed to a Hollywood-type movie) uses only real data and computer simulations of real processes, not some artist's imagination.]

Dynamic Earth integrates the physical and biological sciences in exploring the impact of solar and terrestrial energy sources on the climate. Examinations of the Earth-Sun system, plate tectonics, and the carbon cycle are presented as foundational background to the primary focus of the program: the intricate connection between Earth’s energy trails and the environmental systems that shape its climate. Stunning satellite data visualizations, supercomputing simulations, and photorealistic animations are combined to allow the audience unprecedented insights into the inner workings of Earth’s dynamic climate system.
