Thunder over Discovery 2022
Come join us to celebrate Discovery Grid's 6th birthday party on July 2nd and its survival through the pandemic and economic downturn of the OpenSim metaverse. Thunder over Discovery 2022 is patterned after the real life Thunder over Louisville event. Our event starts with an hour of DJ exravaganza at Club Thunder hosted by DJ Caliope. Following that you will be treated to the Blue Angels virtual air show. The F/A-18 Hornet fighter jets have been upgraded to F-18C Super Hornet jets. They are bigger, faster this year. Be prepared to be blown away by the surround sound high precision breathtaking acrobatic flight maneuvers and thunderous flyovers. Next will be fabulous virtual fireworks in a pyromusical brought to you by PyroVR Fireworks. Neytiri, owner/operator of PyroVR, has again created newer custom effects that will be debuted for this event.
After the fireworks, head back to Club Thunder, where DJ Caliope will be kicking out the jams. Or, head to the airport, and try out the F-18 trainer jet. There will be two Thunder over Discovery showings, one at 2 PM grid time to accommodate our Euro-zone residents and visitors, and one at 6 PM grid time for our North/South Americas residents and visitors.
PLEASE arrive early especially if you are a hypergrid visitor. The doors close during the airshow and during the pyromusical to prevent disruptions.
