Solar Superstorms

Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017 – Wednesday, Dec. 27, 2017

02:30 PM
US/Central

Running Time: 20 minutes

A fury is building on the Sun's surface - with high-velocity jets, a fiery tsunami wave 100,000 kilometers high, and rising loops of electrified gas. To find out why, explore the sun's seething interior in Solar Superstorms. Experience erupting flares, violent solar tornadoes, and massive ejections of plasma into the solar wind, streaming into space and perhaps toward Earth. A new supercomputer has produced these dramatic immersive visualizations of the sun's violent interior and its effect on Earth. Brace yourself the next Solar Superstorm is coming your way!

Note: Please arrive at least 15 minutes before showtime. Late entry is not allowed.
