Eyes in Outer Space (or Eyes in Outer Space: A Science-Factual Presentation) is a 1959 Disney 25-minute live-action/animated educational featurette. It was originally released to theaters on June 18, 1959.


Walt Disney, with the cooperation of the United States Department of Defense, uses music and animation to speculate on the use of space satellite technology (with a coordinated defense network) as a means to modify weather.
