YOUNG HARRIS, Ga. — The O. Wayne Rollins Planetarium at Young Harris College will host a showing of “Wildest Weather in the Solar System” on Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m. The Planetarium is housed in the Maxwell Center for Mathematics and Sciences on the YHC campus, which is located at 1 College Street, Young Harris, Georgia. Admission is $5 for adults, $3 for students and children, and free for YHC students and employees with YHC ID.

This show leads the viewer on a journey to witness the weather phenomena in the solar system. It is an experience of the thick atmosphere of Venus, magnetic storms on the sun, liquid methane showers on Titan, and a 400‐year‐old hurricane whirling at hundreds of miles per hour on Jupiter. From a storm with the power of a 100‐megaton hydrogen bomb, to a dust storm that can engulf an entire planet, this show encapsulates it all.
