This sky show explains what we know about us, as much as can be told, that is, since the story is still unfolding.

Tonight we narrate the easy to digest version of the Big Bang Theory and stimulate your imagination.

The sky is vast and from Earth we see just a small part. So much is out of view. So much is unknown.

Where did we come from? Why are we here?

We’ll take your mind back in cosmic time to the Big Bang and whiz forward through time to the present.

When did it all begin? What happened along the way? What’s left to know? And, importantly, what are the latest thoughts on “Are we alone?”

It is a sky show for contemplation and importantly, a celebration of human triumphs.

We briefly consider astronomical discoveries of significance and highlight some of the key outstanding mysteries of the universe.

The sky in its glorious darkness is showcased for you tonight.

You’ll gain a better sense of how the soupy origins of the universe transformed into the sparkling canvas that is our night sky.
