The first “Way-Out Wednesday” presentation will feature two movies, one for pre-K audiences and one for older children and adults. The Zula Patrol: Under the Weather is a 23-minute movie featuring the adventures of a loveable gang of aliens known as The Zula Patrol, as seen on PBS stations nationwide. Under the Weather has our heroes battling villain Dark Truder as they explore the galaxy learning about weather, both terrestrial and interplanetary.
The second feature will be Faster Than Light, a 25-minute documentary exploring the longstanding quest to develop spacecraft with enough power and speed to make star exploration possible. Supported by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Film Office, Faster Than Light takes audiences on a thrilling journey into the future, aboard laser-driven space sails, antimatter engines, and even warp drive, and will thrill audiences of all ages.
“Way-Out Wednesday” is expected to last as long as the shutdown is mandated and we have Earth Day programming queued up for next week, and even more on the horizon, so students, teachers, and families can get a taste of what the Neag Planetarium has to offer!
