We believe science and art are two sides of the same coin. Through the physical lens of large diameter telescopes pointed at our Milky Way galaxy, and the metaphorical lens of our common humanity, we aim to educate and inspire people everywhere about our world, our galaxy, and the universe we live in.
We achieve this through hands on collaboration with our clients to ensure we meet and exceed the goals of your project. Whether you're looking for a mind-bending lecture to adults, an emersive workshop for teenagers, a full dome planetarium movie that will expand your audiences, or something entirely different, we've got you covered.
The diverse and market-proven business, science and artistic expertise of our team offers your project a result that will have people talking, thinking and feeling inspired. We guarantee it!

Dr. Christian Sasse - Founder
Astronomer, Scientist, Photographer
Dr. Sasse’s passion encompasses both eagle photography and astronomy. His academic background as an electrical engineer and physicist, particularly his knowledge of optics and the physical properties of light, has shaped his photography. His photography uniquely captures colors and patterns due to his keen sense of how his objects reflect, refract, diffract and transmit light.
Christian likes to move boundaries – in 2011 he broke a world record for amateur astronomy; the most distant amateur observation ever achieved on a truly accessible, amateur sized telescope. More here.
Dr. Sasse runs a popular YouTube channel where he uses innovative techniques to bring wildlife and astronomy to his subscribers – an experience which emerses his viewers into an active dialogue during his live events.
