A photon's journey across space, time, and the mind. Seeing is a planetarium show based on a 1-hr PBS documentary "Sight--The Story of Vision" weaving a tale of the journey of humanity that discovered the science, technology and medicine that allows us to understand how sight works, cure diseases of the eye and correct vision.

Follow the journey of a single photon as it is produced in a distant star, before travelling across the vast expanse of space to land on someone's retina. This fulldome planetarium show explores some of the fascinating processes of the cosmos, from astrophysics to the biology of the eye and brain. Funded through a generous grant from Zeiss, the show is narrated by astronomer and science communicator, Neil deGrasse Tyson.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children, seniors and Rowan students (with ID).
