FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) -- Science Central will be opening the Science On A Sphere exhibit Saturday at 10 a.m.

There are about 400 plus images called data sets that will show at a flip of a button. Visitors will be able to see images like the moon, mars, other planets in our solar system, Tsunamis and the earth currents.

“Some of my favorites are when we can connect live time to national weather service satellites, and see every storm of the planet as it is happening now,” Martin Fisher Director of Science Central said. “We can also connect to earthquake data as it is happening.”

Hours are Saturday 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Sunday noon until 5 p.m. and Wednesday through Friday during the school year the exhibit is open from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

21Alive's Chief Meteorologist, Curtis Smith was chosen to be the voice of the sphere.

Visitors can see the earth exhibit every day Science Central is open.
