Comets & Discovery Description
We're all a buzz about comets. And true to Bays Mountain fashion,
we've created an unique show about comets. "Comets &
Discovery" takes the viewer on a journey of discovery. We follow two
intrepid comet hunters in first-person. One, a modern explorer. The
other, Caroline Herschel. The famous 18th century huntress that ruled
the skies for many generations. With both, we learn how they each
searched the skies, made their discoveries, and reported them for
other astronomers to bear out. We also learn about, depending on the
century of the observer, what people thought comets were and their
importance to them. We are using green-screen technology, 3-D
environments, and good ol' fashioned still art. Together with a
captivating script and sumptuous score, this is a great show for the
whole family or school group.
The program also incorporates two live sequences to enhance the learning
and fun. The first will involve and engage the
audience to learn more about the parts of a comet, the path a comet
takes, and the dust and ion tails that splay out in their correct
directions as the comet orbits the sun. The second sequence will use
a facility's star projection system and focus on any upcoming comets
to see in the sky and how to view them.
