As part of a new 8K show production in conjunction with Houston Museum of Natural Science, Evans & Sutherland has a photography team on the ground north of the Arctic Circle. They are photographing the Aurora Borealis, while coordinating with astronauts aboard the International Space Station to capture the same Aurora, in the same locations at the same time.
Using special equipment these images are being specifically captured in 8K resolution for the fulldome. The first results of these coordinated aurora images are now coming in. Sunday night (7 February, 2016) this active aurora was captured by our team and the ISS astronauts at the same time over Norway.
