Lamps of Atlantis

Digistar 4 Full Dome Planetarium Show

Our search for the lost continent of Atlantis takes us on a journey through the astronomical knowledge and understanding of the ancient Greeks. How did the constellations get their names? What different patterns did ancient cultures see in the sky? Was Atlantis a real place? Did it really sink into the sea? We will uncover clues to help us solve this age-old mystery. Narrated by Terry O’Quinn, John Locke from TV’s LOST. From Evans and Sutherland Digital Theater Productions. Images Credit: Evans and Sutherland
