The ASU Planetarium will present the full-dome public astronomy show “Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet” at 8 p.m. Thursdays, Jan. 26 through March 9, in the Vincent Nursing-Physical Science Building, 2333 Vanderventer St.

“Earthquake: Evidence of a Restless Planet” promises audiences a sweeping geological journey and seismic experience. During the show, audiences will fly over the San Andreas Fault before diving into the planet’s interior, travel back in time to witness both the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and the break-up of Pangaea 200 million years ago, and visit the sites of historical earthquakes from the Mediterranean Sea to the Pacific Ocean.

Data-driven visualizations will illustrate the Earth’s story, revealing how subtle motions and sudden ruptures have shaped the planet over eons – and how geological activity influences the course of human history.
