If you get a chance to watch Hubble 3D at IMAX, do so. The Euro and I, planning strategically, showed up on Friday morning, at a ridiculously early hour, so that we could have the entire theatre all to ourselves.

It was one of the most moving and memorable cinematic experiences I’ve ever had. Seeing the Orion Nebula, in 3D and in motion, brought tears to my big doofy eyes. The star nurseries. The cataclysmic winds from these new creations. There are no words. There are, however, a few images.

Get thee to an IMAX, my friends. Now.
