Home > Departments > Edelman Planetarium > Supervolcanoes Planetarium Show

An immersive planetarium show that looks back at rare classes of eruptions that have released the energy that lurks, like a sleeping dragon, beneath the surface of planet Earth. The program moves beyond Earth to explore the impact of giant volcanic eruptions around our solar system. Audiences will fly down to Neptune's frigid moon Triton, and onto the ultimate volcanic world: Jupiter's moon Io. Finally, on a visit to a legendary North American hot spot, Yellowstone National Park, the film asks: can a supervolcano erupt in our time? During this 1-hour long show we will also help you identify the brightest planets and constellations visible in the sky.
