Inside the Sun and Incoming! at the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium tonight and tomorrow.
Explore Our Local Star Tonight In The Los Alamos Nature Center’s Planetarium
Full-dome film “Incoming!” shows on Saturday.
LOS ALAMOS, NM – Learn about our local star at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30 at the Los Alamos Nature Center’s planetarium at a presentation from Joyce Guzik called Inside the Sun. Guzik’s presentation will explore why the sun shines, the possible fate of the sun and earth and much more. She guarantees that the audience will learn something about the sun that they didn’t know before.
At her talk, Guzik will discuss what generates energy inside the sun, how the sun was formed, what it is like underneath the surface and more. Audience members will also learn how we know what is going on inside the sun even though we cannot see beyond its surface.
The nature center is also showing the full-dome film Incoming! at 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1. Narrated by George Takei, this planetarium show explores asteroids, comets and the hard-hitting stories of our cosmic origins.
Seating is limited for both the talk and movie, so please call the nature center at 505-662-0460 or stop by to reserve tickets. Admission for both events is $6 for adults and $4 for kids. Events in the planetarium are not recommended for kids under age 4.
