Wild Films features ‘Light on Earth’ today

Bud Werner Memorial Library in Steamboat Springs presents a free screening of “Light on Earth,” a featured film from the 2017 International Wildlife Film Festival, at 6:30 p.m. today in Library Hall. Sir David Attenborough is the guide, taking viewers into a world he describes as “utterly unlike our own.” He and a team of the world’s leading scientists embark on a quest into the fascinating realm of living light.

The spectacular and magical light produced by glowworms, fireflies and luminous plankton is known as bioluminescence – light made by living creatures. But those quite familiar glows and flashes are just a tiny, easily observed fragment of a previously unexplored, mysterious realm. The sea at night sparkles, as millions of luminous plankton reveal the shapes of dolphins in a truly magical light show.
