Premiere of "In Saturn's Rings"

Louisiana Art & Science Museum

Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 12:00am - 12:00pm

Corresponding with International Astronomy Day, the long-awaited premiere of In Saturn's Rings in the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium is FINALLY HERE! This giant screen adventure will play at 11 AM, 12 PM, 2 PM, and 4 PM in the Irene W. Pennington Planetarium. 

About the film:
Narrated by LeVar Burton, In Saturn’s Rings is a groundbreaking giant-screen adventure that takes audiences on a journey of the mind, heart and spirit, from the Big Bang to the awe-inspiring rings of Saturn.

In Saturn’s Rings is unique as it uses no computer-generated images. Instead, the film painstakingly employs multiplane photo animation created entirely in Adobe After Effects with image processing by over one hundred volunteers.

Over 7.5 million mostly unseen real images from the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn, Sloan Digital Sky Survey, Hubble Telescope Milky Way time lapses, and more are brilliantly brought to life in this epic immersive journey across space and time.

Sponsored by the Charles Lamar Family Foundation. Included in general admission.
