PEEC News:

Embark on a journey into unseen worlds and hidden dimensions at 2 p.m. Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June 19 at the Los Alamos Nature Center, 2600 Canyon Road.

Mysteries of the Unseen World, a full-dome, original production by National Geographic Entertainment and Days End Pictures, allows the audience to see nature from a new perspective.

Mysteries of the Unseen World uses innovative high-speed and time-lapse photography, electron microscopy, and nanotechnologyto transport audiences to an enthralling secret world of nature, events, and breathtaking phenomena not visible to the naked eye. If it is normally too fast, too slow, too small, or outside the visible spectrum, this film will reveal what people have been missing.

This film also will play in the Los Alamos Nature Center July 16 and 17.

Tickets may be purchased by phone or at the nature center for $6 for adults and $4 for children. This movie is not recommended for children under 4 years old. The breathtaking movie starts promptly at 7 p.m. and seating is limited so arrive at least 10 minutes prior.
