Earlier this week, a group of clowns from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus visited Science Museum Oklahoma to help out with a special Science Live show called “Science of the Circus.”

The performers balanced objects, spun plates, created optical illusions and even demonstrated the science of juggling to the delight of the audience. They also handed out red clown noses to the crowd.

Talented photographer Garett Fisbeck got these great shots of the show for The Oklahoman.

“Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: Fully Charged” continues its run at Chesapeake Energy Arena with performances at 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. today and 3 p.m. Sunday. I took my little ones to see “The Greatest Show on Earth” Friday night, and it was one eye-popping spectacle.
