MARCH SKY TOUR AND THE SUN: OUR LIVING STAR

ID : 56498   
« back to classes page
 This spring, we are pairing our popular monthly sky tours with astronomy topic talks and full dome planetarium shows.  We will take you on a tour of the current skies, highlighting visible planets, deep sky objects, and any upcoming special astronomical events. Once you've had your introductory tour, feel free to ask your astronomy questions! We'll use our state of the art planetarium visualization system to take you to see objects of curiosity and wonder.  Each evening will conclude with an immersive planetarium presentation about a different astronomical topic. 

Celebrate the Spring Equinox and the return of the Sun with a brand new program from the European Southern Observatory’s Supernova Planetarium.  The Sun has shone on our world for four and a half billion years. The light that warms our skin today has been felt by every person who has ever lived.  It is our nearest star and our planet’s powerhouse, the source of the energy that drives our winds, our weather and all life.  The passage of the Sun’s fiery disc across the sky — day by day, month by month — was the only way to keep track of time for countless past civilizations.  Don’t be fooled by the terminology; although it is a typical dwarf star, the Sun consumes 600 million tons of hydrogen each second and is 500 times as massive as all the planets combined.  Discover the secrets of our star in this planetarium show and experience never-before-seen images of the Sun’s violent surface in immersive fulldome format. (Ages 10-adult)
