Explore Planetarium Special Effects, See Premiere of ‘Superpower Dogs’ This Weekend At The Nature Center


Head to the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium this weekend to watch a special effects show and to see the premiere of ‘Superpower Dogs’, locally sponsored by Pet Pangaea. Galen Gisler’s planetarium tricks show will be held on Friday, Aug. 30 at 7 p.m. and ‘Superpower Dogs’ will premiere on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 2 p.m.


See some of the special tricks and effects that the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium projector can generate this Friday, Aug. 30. Galen Gisler will explore some of the many special effects PEEC’s astronomers don’t always get a chance to show during their regular talks and night sky shows. The audience will see effects like time-lapse trails, flying outside our galaxy and time travel. Come explore all of these and more at this show, which begins at 7 p.m.

In addition to this program, the nature center will premiere the full-dome film “Superpower Dogs” on Saturday, Aug. 31 at 2 p.m. Local sponsor Pet Pangaea LLC is bringing this new film to Los Alamos. In this film, audience members will discover the inspiring true story of the world’s most extraordinary dogs and the remarkable science behind their life-saving superpowers. The movie is narrated by Chris Evans.
