Full-sky videos of the night sky: a new vector for public outreach

Alexandre Santerne

In this very special and unusual cookie seminar, I will briefly present the new method I recently explored to promote astronomy and the dark sky to a wide public. This method consists on recording high-resolution full-sky videos of the night sky that could be used for free in Planetarium across the world. In particular, I will show in the Planetarium the 4k x 4k full-dome videos I took during 6 nights earlier this year from La Silla Observatory, in Chile. All these videos, made in collaboration with the Planetarium of Porto and the ESO outreach department, are publicly available on the ESO full-dome archive. I will also bring the material I used for technical discussions with interested parts.
