In My Backyard
Children’s entertainer Fred Penner narrates and sings for this lively journey into his backyard, where we discover all sorts of things – colors of the rainbow, bugs and spiders, the different seasons, the planets, the moon, and the stars in the nighttime sky.
In My Backyard is produced by the Calgary Science Centre and has been digitized and converted into fulldome format by Ward Beecher Planetarium.
Take a journey across the electromagnetic spectrum and discover the reason for color. Look inside a plant leaf and inside the human eye. Investigate X-rays from space and in a doctor’s office. Discover the actual color of dinosaurs. Cosmic Colors is a production of the Great Lakes Planetarium Association.
Since 1995, scientists have discovered hundreds of planets orbiting other stars. These “exoplanets” are too far away to ever visit ourselves, but we can imagine what they might look like. In this full dome production, we can see planets with multiple suns, watery landscapes, and gushing volcanoes, all of them possible inhabitants of a distant solar system
