‘Birth of Planet Earth’ at Planetarium

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. – Westminster College’s planetarium will conclude its spring semester programming with “Birth of Planet Earth” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, May 4.

Narrated by Richard Dormer, who portrayed Beric Dondarrion in “Game of Thrones,” “Birth of Planet Earth” tells the stories of our planet’s origins, and also gives a tour of the night sky while explaining how stars live and die.

Scientists believe our galaxy is filled with solar systems and up to a billion planets roughly the size of our own. “Birth of Planet Earth” features  data-driven and cinematic-quality visualizations that explore some of the greatest questions in science today: “How did Earth become a living planet in the wake of our solar system’s violent birth?” and “ “What does its history tell us about our chances of finding other Earth-like worlds?”

The planetarium is located on the first floor of Hoyt Science Center on Westminster’s campus, next to the Dietz Sullivan lecture hall.

The show is free and open to the public, but registration is required due to capacity limitations. Guests are also encouraged to wear face coverings while inside the planetarium.
