DECEMBER SKY TOUR - IS THE GREAT RED SPOT DYING?

ID : 58023   
« back to classes page
This fall, 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. 

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS) has been visible since the first telescopes were invented. This fascinating storm has raged for centuries, but what is its fate?  Recent observations have shown dramatic changes in its appearance.  This program will explain how understandings of the GRS have developed over history and what we know about how it is changing.  What is the fate of Jupiter’s GRS?  (Ages 10-adult)
