Hurricane show debuts at planetarium

The planetarium's new show uses NASA satellite data and information from NOAA to give audiences an up-close view of hurricanes' inner workings.

Just in time for hurricane season, the newly renamed Emil Buehler Perpetual Trust Planetarium at Seminole State College of Florida will entertain stargazers with the new “Tropic Fury” in July.

“Tropic Fury: Investigating Tropical Cyclones” reveals the immense strength of hurricanes and tropical cyclones from around the world. Using NASA satellite data plus information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the show will give audiences an up-close view of the inner workings of hurricanes.

The first weather-related show at the planetarium since 2003, “Tropic Fury” will showcase the facility’s new full-dome video system, projector and state-of-the-art audio system purchased with a grant from the Emil Buehler Foundation.

“With hurricanes playing such an important role in Florida’s history, it seemed appropriate to produce a show that takes visitors inside these forces of nature,” says planetarium Director Derek Demeter.

“Tropic Fury” will debut on July 13, with additional showings on July 20 and July 27. All showings are from 8:30-9:30 p.m.

The Buehler Planetarium at Seminole State is on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, building B, in room 117.

“Central Florida Nights,” the planetarium’s flagship show, will be presented from 8:30-9:30 p.m. on July 12, July 19 and July 26.

The planetarium is free for Seminole State students, faculty and staff with a valid Seminole State ID.
