Narrated by Academy Award winning actor Geoffrey Rush and presenting the latest scientific information, this new planetarium show brings to life all that is fascinating and extreme in the world of black holes. Witness what would happen if you got too close to one and see how a black hole is able to warp time and space. No longer the stuff of science fiction, the discovery of the black hole has been a triumph of modern science, an incredible journey from imagination to reality.

Legends of the Night Sky, Perseus and Andromeda; Followed by Legend of Orion

October 25th @ 1:00 pm  

Run time approx. 41 minutes

Perseus and Andromeda is 18 minutes of full-dome fun, while also teaching children and adults the Greek mythological story about the constellations. Perseus and Andromeda engages the audience with a wonderful story filled with humorous and exciting characters. Orion (approximately 23 minutes) takes a lighthearted and imaginative look at the myths and stories associated with the constellation Orion, the great hunter of the winter sky. The show brings the mythological Orion to life in a fun-filled, animated adventure. Accompanied by narrators Aesop the owl and Socrates the mouse, we follow Orion's adventures as he grows to manhood, battles mythical beasts, foils the plot of an evil king and wins the heart of Artemis, the beautiful moon-goddess. By the end of the story, we learn how the constellation Orion was placed in the sky, forever turning overhead throughout the seasons.

The top alternative songs of the ’90s helped usher in a major cultural shift, as serious-minded, image-free bands blew hair metal and pop off the airwaves almost overnight. Many of these bands have gone on to become the new ruling class of rock ‘n’ roll in the years, and decades, that followed. — AOL Radio
