Event Details:
 How can you see infinity? Like stepping into a kaleidoscope, mind-bending fractal zooms will take your breath away in this immersive show. Combining a state-of-the-art projection system, original music, and powerful computer graphics, you will feel as though you are traveling into another dimension. Presented by the Lourdes University Appold Planetarium, The Psychedelic Trip into Fractals is a journey into an infinitely complex and visual world created by powerful computers but intimately linked to the natural world around us.
 
As the Fractals zoom around the planetarium dome, audiences recognize common patterns found in nature such as shapes in trees, lightning, coastlines, seashells and more – all which can be found within these fractal zooms. Each fractal tells the story of the processes that created it -- whether the erosion of a canyon, the evolution of a galaxy, or the computation of an equation.
 
Admission prices for the Psychedelic Trip into Fractals are $5 for adults and $4 for children 12 and under. The family-friendly shows are offered at 7:30 p.m. on the following Saturdays:

·         January 14 and 21

·         February 4 and 25

 
To make reservations, call 419-517-8897 or email [email protected].
