Bonus short: “A Tale of Scale”

A fun little poem about how Grandpa's pet goat taught him about the vastly different sizes of astronomical bodies.

“Extreme Weather”

Climate change is rapidly affecting our land, oceans, and atmosphere.  Extreme weather, driven by the changing climate, gives rise to powerful hurricanes, torrential downpours, and drought, resulting in natural disasters.  National Geographic brings you face to face with Mother Nature at her most dangerous in this film.  Experience the action as massive chunks of ice shear off a rapidly melting glacier in Alaska.  In the Midwest, cameras roll as storm chasers risk their lives to capture data as deadly tornadoes race toward them.  In drought-ravaged California, filmmakers embed themselves with firefighters trying to contain raging wildfires on the front lines.  The film unveils the surprising links between these three areas, demonstrating how small changes in one area can have major effects elsewhere.

“Deep Sky” (w/ live sky tour)

The starry sky is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes we can see from Earth.  Thousands of stars dotting the sky above our heads provoke that feeling of infinity and at the same time smallness.  Humans have felt this since we first turned our eyes up to the sky.

But what lies beyond?  If we were able to look farther and farther away and to study this black background of the night, what would we see?

Over the past decades large telescopes and observatories in space have spied the black background of the night and have unearthed a fascinating, dynamic and complex universe…Hundreds, thousands of astronomical objects that were hidden from our view have filled our eyes with an explosion of colors, shapes and unimaginable dimensions.

This modern image of our universe deserves to be told and known by the public. Come with us and discover our own Deep Sky.

A live sky tour follows the program, featuring constellations, planets, the moon and other items of interest currently visible in the sky, with tips for finding your way around in the heavens on the next clear night, and stories about the stars.
