Aurorae

This show showcases the awe and majesty of the aurora and explores the science behind their origins. In March 2015, a team from the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan of Montreal travelled to Yellowknife, in the Northwest Territories, to spend many frigid nights filming no fewer than 179,000 images of the northern lights, in 360°. The crew had the perfect conditions to observe these shimmering waves of light, beneath a clear sky far from sources of light pollution. In these northern regions, the aurora borealis are visible 240 nights a year, on average.

For this all-new production by the Planétarium Rio Tinto Alcan, directors Philippe Baylaucq and Sébastien Gauthier have put together an original immersive show. Gauthier, in co-operation with Loïc Quesnel, set the images to music by DJ Champion to create an exceptional experience for audiences.

 

Australia's Great Wild North

Running Time: 50 minutes

Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes.  Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world's biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth. The coast, rivers and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile. They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years - even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.
