Scientific visualization is a fast developing field. The rapid developments in computer graphics, though done primarily for movies and video games, has enabled scientific graphics to achieve a level of polish never before seen. Astronomy, being the most visual of the sciences, has benefited more than any other from computer graphics. In addition, the current transition from traditional optical star ball based planetariums to full-dome digital theaters has increased the demand, supply, and quality of astronomical visualizations. This special session will bring together the best astronomy visualizations done for research, outreach, and public presentation. Speakers were invited based on a juried selection of visualizations during the fall of 2005. Join us for a look at the coolest animations, details of how they are made, and the scientific stories that they tell. The goal is to foster communication and collaboration between astronomers and artists to increase the breadth and depth of stunning astronomical visuals av ailable. Individual presentations will be listed in the Program Update distributed at the meeting.
