Have you ever wondered why the sky is blue, Mars is red, and plants are green?

The community is invited to The University of Toledo Ritter Planetarium to take an adventure along the electromagnetic spectrum and discover the world of color at 8:30 p.m. every Friday from May 5 through June 30.

“Cosmic Colors, an Adventure Along the Spectrum,” an original production of the Daniel M. Soref Planetarium in cooperation with the Great Lakes Planetarium Association, will be projected inside UT’s full dome.

The show takes viewers on a tour of a plant leaf and through a human eye. Plus, it explores the world of infrared in a roaring fire, and it investigates x-rays by taking on a monstrous black hole.

Admission to the program is $7 for adults and $5 for children, senior citizens and UT community members. All children younger than 4 are free.

Doors open 30 minutes before the show.
