Data-based simulation of seismic waves from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake.

A sweeping geological journey, Earthquake explores the forces that transform the surface of our planet. After a stunning flight over the San Andreas Fault, audiences travel back in time to experience San Francisco's infamous 1906 earthquake. Data-driven visualizations illustrate Earth's story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped our planet over eons—and how geological activity influences the course of human history. Finally, see how scientists and engineers help society prepare for a safer future.

The Planetarium is very popular and tickets are handed out on a first come first serve basis due to limited seating. Visit the cart at the planetarium theater to pick up a show pass. 

School and youth groups are required to have an advance reservation in a school show in order to attend the Planetarium. Please ensure your reservation is confirmed, as we do not accept walkup requests on the day of your field trip.
