Movie Night - 'Luminous' - Livestream

Astronomy Professor Larry Molnar believes he can find the unfindable - a star that is about to explode.

When Larry and a small team of students stumble across a strange star, they embark on a dramatic journey of scientific discovery, which brings the unlikely team into the international spotlight. But others in the astronomical community are skeptical, and Larry’s professional reputation hangs in the balance.

Join us for a screening of the new documentary Luminous, directed by award-winning filmmaker, Sam Smartt (Wagonmasters), which chronicles the journey behind Calvin University astronomy professor Larry Molnar's 2017 prediction of a luminous red nova in the constellation of Cygnus. Q&A with Smartt to follow.
