Saturday Night Dome Shows

Seeing! (7 pm) follows a photon across the universe, as it travels from a distant star to the eye of a person on Earth and then inside that eye along the optic nerve to the brain. Narrated by Neil DeGrasse Tyson and recommended for ages 8 and up. Phantom of the Universe (8 pm) explores the search for dark matter from the Big Bang to the Large Hadron Collider. Narrated by Tilda Swinton and recommended for ages 10 and up.
