In the Steps of Apollo Sound World Experience

Saturday 20th July 2019 from 09:00am to 19:00pm

We The Curious
Anchor Road, Bristol, BS1 5DB

Sound World and the planetarium team at We The Curious (WTC), Bristol have created a captivating new show, marking the 50th anniversary of the first manned flight to the moon and exploring the future of space travel.

The show will feature five wonderful, specially commissioned string quartets (by leading composers Litha Efthymiou, Sadie Harrison, Julian Leeks, Michael Ellison and Emmy award winner Richard Blackford) which will be heard alongside five astronomical journeys taking the audience from the observations of ancient stargazers, through the excitement of the 1969 mission to the farthest reaches of the Universe; revealing the beauty of the cosmos and our place within it. These stunning, bespoke 3D visuals have been created by WTC’s Anna Henley.

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
