Starlight is a 25-min show produced by Melbourne Planetarium – Scienceworks – Museum Victoria for planetariums and digital dome theatres. Info, trailer & full preview available.
For thousands of years we have looked to the stars at night in wonder and awe.
Their mysteries have inspired curiosity across all cultures and civilizations. Starlight is told through the eyes of Margaret, as she steps back in time to relive childhood fears of the dark that awoke her curiosity about the night sky.
Starlight features stunning visualizations that take audiences from Earth to the stars, through nebulae and galaxies, and on trips through the hearts of stars and supernova explosions. It also presents Christiaan Huygens’s first attempts to study starlight, and introduces the concept of spectroscopy — all as part of Margaret’s personal story about exploring the sky.
Join Margaret as she takes you on an out-of-this-world journey to discover constellations and ancient cultures, the birth and death of a star and the inner workings of our Sun.
Note: There are two different versions of this show: one focusing on the Northern Hemisphere, the other on the Southern one. This online preview features the Northern sky.
