Imagine that you are a traveler from the depths of interstellar space. As you approach our solar system, what will you find? Long before you reach the Sun, you traverse the Oort cloud, the deep freeze at the outermost reaches. You pass by the gas giants and their families of moons and rings. Finally, you reach the inner solar system, and the rocky worlds of Mars, Earth, Venus and Mercury.
Take a tour of the planets from the vantage point of an intrepid explorer searching for a new place to call home.
From the cold frontier inhabited by the dwarf planets of the outer solar system to the warmth of the Sun, any self-respecting traveler would ultimately be drawn to Earth, to explore and understand how this planet alone has come to be an ideal haven for life. Discover seasonal climate changes, and witness wondrous visions from the surface of this unique world — Moon phases and eclipses.
Come along for the ride, and see our neighborhood in space from a new perspective.

===== ABOUT THIS FULLDOME TRAILER =====
Fulldome shows are meant to be projected onto a hemispherical dome surface typically found in planetarium theaters. Viewed on a flat screen, the imagery looks curved or warped at the edges; when projected using fisheye-lens equipment, the images look correct. This HD video was cropped from spherical-mirror warped dome masters to highlight the movie's theater-front sweet spot.
This preview is intended primarily to provide a taste of the show's content to planetarium professionals looking for shows to display in their theaters.
