IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL:
Please send the museum an email and let them know so that they can release the tickets. [masked]
The waitlist below is meaningless.
This event requires registration through Eventbrite but it is sold out. If you registered in time and the museum knows of your intentions then you are all set.
Anyone who doesn't have a ticket through Eventbrite but still would like to go, you can come to the museum after 6:00 pm on the day of and get on the list to get an unclaimed ticket. It's a slight risk but I have never seen anyone get turned away that showed up so give it a shot.
Wednesday, April 10 | 7:00 – 9:00 pm
Thanks to The Generosity of The Lowell Institute who paid for all of this to happen so that we can show up and enjoy and learn!

Solar flares and coronal mass ejections are currently the biggest "explosions" in our solar system, packing the power of nearly one billion hydrogen bombs. Through stunning visuals in the Charles Hayden Planetarium, explore how these geomagnetic storms can cause awesome sights, but also huge interruptions in the technologies we depend on every day.
If you've registered with Eventbrite effectively, pick up your reserved ticket at the table in the lobby and meet us near the entrance to the planetarium (most likely in front of the Omni Theater then we can get in line at 6:40) If this makes no sense, follow it exactly and it will work out. If it still doesn't make sense, you skipped a step and might need to re-evaluate. Worst case scenario, just go to Dante at 9:00 and have a drink and relax. When the sun blows up, you will probably not be called upon to provide assistance so I wouldn't worry about what you might have missed. In summary, I'm going to speculate that your cell phone and GPS will be fried and all of the doomsday preppers that I'm mostly afraid of will have to be negotiated with for food and supplies.
