FULL DOME ANIMATION SEQUENCES 2

Tunguska: Viewed from above, the detonation of the Tunguska impactor over Siberia shortly after 7 A.M. on June 30, 1908.  40 seconds

Tunguska Side View: The Tunguska impactor begins its fiery descent into Earth's atmosphere moments before detonation.  12 seconds

 

 

 

Asteroid Belt: Lurking in a zone between Mars and Jupiter is a group of minor planets concentrated in the plane of the ecliptic.  A few asteroids fly over  the viewers head as a slight tilt downward reveals oncoming bodies.  40 seconds

 

 

 

Origin Of The Solar System: Bipolar gas jets emanate from the disk in which our Solar System is forming.  We enter the solar nebula, pass Kuiper Belt objects and planets in formation.  We arrive at Earth in time to witness the Great Whack and watch the Earth cool from a semi-molten mass to the ocean-covered world we know today.  Jupiter, Saturn, Earth and Mars images courtesy of JPL/NASA-Caltech. 140 seconds

 

 

 

Algol: The two stars comprising Algol revolve around their center of mass.  The orbital tilt, on approach, matches that as seen from Earth, allowing the stars to exhibit the mutual eclipses which have made this binary famous.  The view shifts slightly for the viewer, allowing the orbits of the pair to be viewed more clearly.  89 seconds

 

 

 

Black Hole: A solar-mass black hole expels high-speed jets of gas.  66 seconds

 

 

 

Collision with Theia: The hypothetical Mars sized body, as it collides with early Earth depicting the scientific hypothesis for the formation of the Moon.  41 seconds
