Friday Nights at the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium are back with two fantastic shows for all ages screening in the Cosmic Skydome throughout November and December.
We are Aliens is perfect for a family fun night out. Narrated by Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley in the Harry Potter film series), this fascinating show takes viewers on an epic ride through the galaxy in search of alien life. Is Earth the only planet with life on it, or could the human race one day be part of a galactic community sharing knowledge and ideas?
Bella Gaia, a musical journey around planet Earth, is ideal for couples looking for a unique date night. Blending NASA science visualisations with cultural scenes from ancient Egypt to modern cities, this captivating show explores the relationship between human civilisation and our ecosystem, and simulates the new perspectives gained by astronauts sent into space.
Established in 1978 within the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mt Coot-tha precinct, the Sir Thomas Brisbane Planetarium is one of the many ways Brisbane City Council is growing your Brisbane lifestyle by delivering a range of creative events and experiences for all ages to enjoy.
