ORONO – Only two more opportunities remain for people to see a special show at the Emera Astronomy Center.
On Friday of this week and on Friday of next week, the center will be showing a full-dome experience called “Áróra: Tales of the Northern Lights.”
According to the astronomy center’s director, the show is the first in America to show images and videos from Iceland of the Northern Lights.
“It’s about an hour long but we take you through the story of the Northern Lights, sort of what causes that phenomena to occur,” Director Shawn Laatsch said.
“We have beautiful images of aurora from Iceland or Icelandic landscapes, if you will, and the narration and the music comes from Iceland so it’s pretty nice in that regard,” he said.
Both shows start at 7 p.m.
