For thousands of years we have looked to the stars in awe and wonder. Their mysteries have inspired curiosity across all cultures and civilisations.

Narrated by multi-award winning Australian actress, Sigrid Thornton, Starlight is told through the eyes of Margaret, as she steps back in time to relive childhood fears of the dark. She takes you on an out-of-this-world journey to discover constellations and ancient cultures, the birth and death of a star and the inner workings of our Sun.

Featuring stunning full dome visualisations of being inside a supernova explosion and drifting through a stellar nursery, a rich gaseous nebula that is collapsing into stars.
