Cosmic Colors: An Adventure Along the Spectrum – Enjoy a wondrous journey through the world of color and beyond! Discover why the sky is blue, why Mars is red, and the reason why many things are the color that they are. Tour the interior of a plant leaf, voyage through a human eye, then step into the invisible universe as you investigate X-rays by taking on a monstrous black hole. Explore the world of infrared in a roaring fire, and even discover what may have been the actual color of a dinosaur. Learn about the amazing rainbow of cosmic light through ‘Cosmic Colors’, an original production of the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium in cooperation with the Great Lakes Planetarium Association.
