'Journey to the Stars' is a two-part program. The first part is an introductory program entitled Saving the Night. Written and narrated by David Levy, this minishow briefly discusses the issue of light pollution and the adverse effect that our growing civilization has on the science of astronomy and the beauty of the nighttime sky. The main part of the program is 'Journey to the Stars,' a multimedia program that combines stars, video, panoramic scenes, planetarium special effects and numerous space images to describe what research astronomers now know about the birth and death of stars, how backyard stargazers can better understand the immense scale of the universe, and how humans have developed space probes and manned spacecraft to extend our reach into space.
