On Sunday, hubby and I took the boys to see the new Disney movie, Earth. It's been over a year since we were to a movie and this one was spectacular. The images of Earth from space were magnificient. The time lapse shots of the changing of the seasons were spectacular. Scenes of waterfalls, oceans and an assortment of different species left us marveling at the wonders of Earth's beauty.
There was lots to be learned from this movie for both adults and children. It followed the lives of a polar bear family, a whale and her offspring and a herd of elephants. Each scene of the movie stole our breath away and left us with knowledge not previously known.
When the movie ended and we headed to the van, the boys talked about what they had learned. Both of them love animals and nature, so this was a great movie to take in. They asked me what I had learned and I told them that I never knew that Antartica was home to the southern lights. I have seen the wonder of the Aurora Borealis, but didn't realize that the same phenomena took place at the South Pole. They are called the aurora australis or the southern polar lights and are only visible from high southern latitudes.
I saw a small segment about the elephants on tv, but enjoyed the entire show. It is an educational show for the entire family and one that can truly be enjoyed. I highly recommend it to everyone. Even the small children at the theater were spellbound by what they were seeing. If you have seen it or decide to, please let me know your opinion. ~Blessings, Mary~
