Night Vision: Reason for the Seasons

Ah, Salt Lake City–too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter, never quite just right. We’re heading into summer now, so the sun is high in the sky, the days are long and bright, and we can all leave behind our sweaters for swimsuits and replace snowballs with water balloons. Quite different from the short, cold days of December with the sun low in the sky, giving us weak sunlight.

But why is that? What’s causing that change?

Many of us have some vague understanding of how the seasons work, but, when asked to describe it, are surprised to realize we don’t know all the details. If that’s the case, then stop by Clark Planetarium at 6:45 on [dates] and join us for Night Vision, where we’ll be looking at just what does make the seasons go ’round!

Night Vision: Reason for the Seasons is presented by Amelia Margetts on Thursday, June 16th and Saturday, June 18th, in the Hansen Dome Theater at 6:45pm. Tickets available online​ or at the Clark Planetarium ticket desk. Free for members and $2 for everyone else.
