FridayNightLights2

Join us in the planetarium each week for Friday Night Lights, where you can enjoy a special evening presentation under the dome! We offer a new program each week, ranging from live shows about the local night sky to feature presentations.

 

 

SOLAR SUPERSTORMS
Friday, January 22 at 5, 6, & 7 PM

A fury is building on the surface of the Sun – high-velocity jets, a fiery tsunami wave that reaches 100,000 kilometers high, rising loops of electrified gas. What’s driving these strange phenomena? How will they affect planet Earth? Find the answers as we venture into the seething interior of our star. Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch.
