Sky Tour: Window on the Universe

The Sky Show "Sky Tour: Window on the Universe" takes you to explore the magnificent night skies around the world.

The journey starts in the far north in the aurora-lit skies of Iceland. You will travel across beautiful landscapes, oceans and continents to discover different views of the spectacular night sky that our planet offers. You will watch the Southern Cross and Milky Way move slowly across the sky with beautiful time-lapse images. You will enter the magical dream world of Salar de Uyuni, where the Universe is seen reflected within a giant natural mirror. You will also leave our planet to travel to space in beautiful simulations that reveal the true nature of our galaxy.

"Sky Tour: Window on the Universe" incorporates mesmerizing time-lapse footage gathered over three years of world travel, from North America, Hawaii, Bolivia, Australia to New Zealand. Computer graphics and simulations explain why the views of the starry sky change with latitudes. With the melodious music, the show allows us to indulge in the breathtaking starry skies and admire the wonderful views offered by the Earth and the Universe.

Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia
The World's Largest Mirror
Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is the largest salt flat in the world. It is covered by a thick layer of salt crust which is extraordinarily flat. After rain, a thin layer of rainwater will transform this place into the world's largest mirror. At night, you will find yourself completely enclosed by stars from above and below in a magical wonderland.

 

Southern Cross
The Southern Cross above Easter Island
Visible from any places at latitudes south of 25°N, Crux is one of the most familiar constellations in the Southern Hemisphere. It features a distinctive cross-shaped asterism that is commonly known as the Southern Cross. Projecting a line from the top to the bottom of the cross approximately four and a half times beyond gives a point close to the South Celestial Pole.

 

Aurora Australis
Aurora Australis in New Zealand
When charged particles of the solar wind collide with the Earth's atmosphere, atoms or molecules in the atmosphere are ionized or excited which then emit light to form the aurora. In the Northern Hemisphere, the aurora is known as aurora borealis which dances in the night sky in high latitude areas such as Iceland or Alaska. The southern counterpart known as aurora australis illuminates the far south in the Southern Hemisphere.
