From Earth we cannot look at the Sun with our human eyes. This 3D Sun odyssey gives audiences a chance to see the Sun up close in startling 3D; stand above the arctic circle and witness the most brilliant auroras on Earth; take a ride on a solar blast from Sun’s surface to Earth’s magnetosphere and come to a deeper understanding of what this vast sea of fire means to life here on Earth.

Length: 20:00 and 23:00
