A film produced by the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie's planetarium

Let your audience travel back into time to start seeing History with different eyes. They will observe two major astronomical phenomena of the Middle Ages in the light of our current knowledge. First of all, Halley's comet which crossed the sky in 837 and revealed the shape of its core as it is known now.

Then the supernova explosion, observed in 1054. After approaching the surface of a dying star, it exploded and the audience travels through the cloud of gas and dust, which is what we now call "Crab Nebula", issued from supernova remnants. A 1,000 years astronomical odyssey, from Rome to Aix-la-Chapelle, from Toledo to Palos de la Frontera.
