BC Planetarium Show- Solar Superstorms
February 19 @ 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm EST
Solar Superstorms narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch takes viewers into the tangle of magnetic fields and superhot plasma that vent the Sun’s rage in dramatic flares, violent solar tornadoes, and the largest eruptions in the solar system, coronal mass ejections. Audiences will witness a fury 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.
There will be a short sky talk about the constellations after the show.
Shows are open to the public. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for kids and seniors. Berea students get in free with a Berea ID.
