The digital planetarium program SEEING! follows a photon’s creation and journey across the galaxy to a young stargazer’s eye. The viewer follows the photon into the girl’s eye, learning the structures of the eye and their functions, prior to taking a ride on the optic nerve. Dramatic fulldome imagery from around the globe featuring humanity, landscapes, skyscapes, wildlife and space will be used to create the story of the photons journey through the eye and its conversion to the electrochemical impulse traveling the neuro pathways of the brain to create the image we see. Along the way the program examines how the eye works, how technology has enabled us to restore vision and prevent a variety of diseases that affect sight. 

Produced by Mirage3D and Koenig Films and funded through a generous grant by Zeiss this program brings the story of sight and vision to planetariums around the globe. “Seeing!” was directed by Robin Sip, written by Emmy Award© winning writer Kris Koenig and narrated by Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson, Director of the Hayden Planetarium at the Rose Center for Earth and Space in New York City.
