Supernovae: The Spectacular Deaths of Big Stars
Last September, scientists discovered one of the closest supernovae that had been observed in decades in an area called the Pinwheel Galaxy. Just what is a supernova and how powerful can it be? Find out the answers to these questions when Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) presents “Supernovae: The Spectacular Deaths of Big Stars!” The show will be presented live on Monday, Feb. 6, at 7 and 8:15 p.m. in the College’s Planetarium Sky Theater.

“This will be an opportunity to learn about historical supernovae, how they were formed and see some great photos,” says Pat Hanrahan, Planetarium director.“During the show, we will use a star projector to see where these supernovae were discovered and also discuss highlights of the current night sky.”

All shows are presented under a realistic representation of the night sky, featuring the latest galactic, stellar and planetary images.

Visitors are encouraged to ask questions during each 45-minute program. Children are welcome to attend.

Parking Changes
Parking permits are required and may be purchased for $3 at ticket kiosks located by the flagpoles and gym. (Violators will be ticketed and/or towed)
