    From dazzling auroras to the invisible force that protects us all from harmful particles from the sun and the galaxy — magnetism is all around us.

    With "Magnetism: Defending the Planet, Defining the Cosmos" — a mobile planetarium show in the Putnam's Discovery Dome — you'll discover how this powerful, misunderstood force shields our oceans from solar winds and how scientists are working to understand the magnetic connection between the Earth and the Sun!

    This brand-new Discovery Dome show will play for just three days this December, letting you feed your mind and fight the winter brain drain!
