Star Theater Public Show

Full dome planetarium feature "Forces of Nature" plus live night sky.

Suitable for all ages.


About the show: "Forces of Nature"

Witness the awesome power and the unimaginable destruction of explosive volcanoes, ground-buckling earthquakes, and deadly tornadoes as you head into the field with scientists who risk their lives exploring the origins and behaviors of these fearsome natural disasters. During this program, students will venture to the brink of an erupting volcano on the Caribbean island of Montserrat; discover how the history of massive, city-leveling earthquakes in Turkey is helping scientists predict where and when the next quake will strike, and crisscross the Midwest's infamous "Tornado Alley" with storm chasers racing to unlock the secrets of monster twisters. Produced by National Geographic and Geographic Flims, Inc.
