Northern Lights

The program presents the northern lights as a phenomenon whose source is the Sun, with the help of the Science On a Sphere object. The Earth-Sun interaction will also be explored through physics and history under the guidance of the inspirer. Please notice that this is not a planetarium film, but a program led by an inspirer, involving students.

The program can be booked only in finnish.


Science On a Sphere is a projection device developed by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration ( NOAA ). Information collected by satellites about the oceans, climate, earth's crust and space is mainly projected onto the surface of the sphere, which has a two-dimensional diameter. Some of the material is updated every day.
