A THREE dimensional film tackling the big questions of astronomy will be launched at the Ballarat Observatory this week.
Capturing the Cosmos is a state-of-the-art movie narrated by actor Geoffrey Rush and featuring time-lapse photography by Alex Cherney.
The film details the findings of the sky-mapping project, the all-sky astronomy venture that is being undertaken from the Australian outback.
Observatory manager Judith Bailey said the film was a huge coup for Ballarat Municipal Observatory and Museum.
The film will officially launch on Friday, with regular screenings to be held twice a day from June 25 at 5pm and 7pm each Saturday during the school holidays. Visitors will also be able to view Jupiter, Saturn and Mars from the observatory’s telescopes.
