BIDDEFORD, Maine - Sept. 12, 2022 - PRLog -- What can cause our normally benign Sun to erupt in such furry that it can threaten the world's power and technological infrastructure? You will fnd out in "Solar Flares & Salazar," a program that uses advanced visualization of the supecharged, gigantic storms raging on the surface of our Sun and blasting solar gas tens of millions of miles into interplanetary space. You will also learn how the American artist Roland Salazar Rose interprets the Sun's relationship to the Earth; see 11 provocative and colorful paintings from the artist's Mexican painting series, "Solar Flares," which were originally portrayed on the Versant Power Astronomy Center planetarium dome and dissolved into bursts of solar light and panoramas of life on Earth. As reviewer Kaye Cook wrote about the documentary, "Our Sun is at the center of your imagination for 22 minutes; it is a trhrilling and soul-searching experience."
Artist Director, Roland Salazar Rose, of Biddeford, Maine, conceived the idea to memoralize a significant Corona Massive Eruption, CME, when he was a resident artist in Mexico in 2011 by painting 11 large works of art on Stonehenge paper. As our Sun was about to give forth an impressive burst of magnetic energy and emit radiation acros the entire "electronic spectrum," Salazar was insired to introduce the public to an "Solar Flares artistc treatment of this event, hoping to enhance public awareness about how important it is to observe and protect our "Spaceship Earth."
In 2017, Salazar heard from the International Planetraium Society and contacted Shawn Laatsch, Director of the former Emera Planetarium, now known as the Versant Power Astronomy Center. Their succesful collaboration resulted in Director Laatsch's planetarium dome projection, "Solar Flares & Salazar," and it opened to the public in November 2018.
