What you can’t see will amaze you.

Take an exhilarating voyage through the known and unknown and watch Dark Universe, a new planetarium show at the California Academy of Sciences. Fly through distant galaxies and learn how scientists shed new light on today’s biggest cosmic mysteries—dark matter and dark energy.

Narrated by astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, this immersive planetarium show features exquisite renderings of enigmatic cosmic phenomena, seminal scientific instruments, and spectacular scenes in deep space. Hurtle through Jupiter’s atmosphere, sail out to the far reaches of space, and be there for the birth of our own galaxy while exploring how our understanding of the Universe has evolved over time.
