POLARIS

James, a travelling penguin from the South Pole, and Vladimir, a funny bear from the North Pole, meet on the Arctic sea ice. The two are amateur astronomers, trying to solve the mystery of why the night is so long at the Earth’s poles. In an exciting scientific adventure, they build an observatory and then an improvised spaceship. During a trip around the Earth, extended to Mars and Saturn, they get their answer and discover that the planets have similarities but also differences.

  • Produced by: Planétarium de Saint-Étienne (France)

 

LUCIA, The Secret of Shooting Stars

Where do shooting stars come from? Why do they occur? What are meteorites? A penguin called James and a polar bear called Vladimir are struck by an unknown object as they contemplate the Southern Lights from space. A hummingbird named Lucia flies to their assistance after their dangerous landing. She tells them a strange legend about “stones of light.” Once their spaceship is repaired, all three of them set off on a search for answers to their questions.

  • Produced by: Planétarium de Saint-Étienne (France)
  • For ages 4 to 10
