January – March 2021 | Sunday Show Schedule

1pm - One World, One Sky: Big Bird's Adventure

Join Big Bird and Elmo on an unforgettable journey to the Moon and back! When Elmo’s friend Hu Hu Zhu stops by Sesame Street for a visit, he notices that Sesame Street is a little bit different from his home in China. But when he looks up at the sky, he feels right at home. Elmo and Hu Hu Zhu may live in different cities, but they share the same sky! With a little help from Big Bird, the two friends learn about the Sun, the Moon, and the Big Dipper, then blast off in an imaginary rocket to the Moon!

2pm - Big Astronomy

It takes a team of people with diverse backgrounds, talents and skills, working under unique sky conditions, to make a world-class observatory succeed. Big Astronomy introduces you to cutting-edge telescopes in the remote mountains of Chile and to the people who make sure these instruments operate day and night, unlocking the secrets of the universe.

3pm - Stars of the Pharaohs

Travel to ancient Egypt to see how science was used to tell time, make a workable calendar, and align huge buildings. You’ll learn about the connection the ancient Egyptians felt with the stars and various astronomical phenomena, and experience some of the most spectacular temples and tombs of the ancient world recreated in all of their original splendor. Narrated by John Rhys-Davies, of the Indiana Jones films and The Lord of the Rings films.

4pm - Jack Frost and the Skies of Winter

Allison, a bright student eager to learn about the night sky, and Michael, her very uninterested brother, embark on an outing into the frigid winter night for a guided tour of the heavens. Jack Frost teaches the children and the audience about stars and winter constellation lore, and facts about star color and temperature, as well as an open-minded and imaginative approach to better understand the stellar pictures.

A family from another star system searches our solar system for the perfect vacation spot. Dad wants peace and quiet, Mom wants pretty moons. Visit all the planets and enjoy exotic locations in the vacation trip of a lifetime. Walk on Pluto’s frozen surface, fly the ice cliffs of Miranda and feel the power of Jupiter’s storm clouds. A fun show for the whole family with awesome vistas and fun exploration. Which destination would you choose, and where will our family of aliens end up?

4pm - Dynamic Earth

With visualizations based on satellite monitoring data and advanced supercomputer simulations, this cutting-edge production follows a trail of energy that flows from the Sun into the interlocking systems that shape our climate: the atmosphere, oceans, and the biosphere. You’ll ride along on swirling ocean and wind currents, dive into the heart of a monster hurricane, come face-to-face with sharks and gigantic whales, and fly into roiling volcanoes.
