Join us for a worldwide event celebrating the moon and our evening sky. Gaze at the moon through telescopes. Hold a piece of the moon in your hand. Explore the night sky using Google Sky. Make an icy comet, discover the challenges of building a moon colony, and learn about LADEE, NASA's latest lunar mission launched from Virginia!
Included in this event is a viewing of Hidden Universe in IMAX 3D at 7:00PM and 8:00PM. An extraordinary journey deep into space, the documentary adventure Hidden Universe brings to life the farthest reaches of our universe with unprecedented clarity through real images captured by the world's most powerful telescopes — seen on-screen and in 3D for the first time. Stunning, high-resolution 3D images of space allow moviegoers to explore the earliest galaxies, watch stars being born in vivid clouds of gas and dust, tour the surface of Mars, and witness images of distant celestial structures including stunning views of the Sun. Seen for the first time in IMAX 3D, these dramatic new images offer fresh insight into the origins and evolution of the universe.
