How big is the Universe? BIG looks at how we have started to explore the Universe beginning with space probes reaching out to our own Sun and the rest of the Solar System. Visit nebulae, globular clusters, galaxies and black holes as we travel as far as telescopes can see.
This January, the Lourdes University Appold Planetarium is bringing back BIG – a fulldome show that takes a quirky and imaginative look at the size and scale of our universe.
With its lighthearted storytelling style, 3D graphics, clay-animated characters and a surround musical score, BIG brings a really big subject down to earth. Showing at 7:30 p.m. on Saturdays Jan. 12, Jan. 26, Feb. 9 and Feb. 23.
Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out. For more information or to purchase tickets contact Lori Witham, Appold Planetarium Coordinator, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 419/517-8897.
Lourdes University’s Appold Planetarium is a member of the NASA Museum Alliance and has been designated an official NASA Space Place. Named “Best Place to See the Stars” by Ohio Magazine, the Appold Planetarium features SciDome, a fulldome video system powered by Starry Night – the world’s most comprehensive astronomy software, allowing real-time 3D sky simulation, fulldome shows and multi-media presentations.
