From the fleeting moments of a solar eclipse to the battle between the solar wind and Earth's magnetic field to the hinterlands of space, in which our star is only a smudge of light this program showcases the beauty and vastness of the Sun's influence. In India, viewers experience a profound celestial divide when solar light and heat are completely shut off, if only for a few minutes. In Norway, the night sky glows with the Aurora Borealis as massive waves of solar particles create a light show that may have equivalents on neighboring planets. Shifting to far beyond the Earth, the film follows the Voyager spacecraft as it searches for the outer reach of the solar wind-but even here the Sun exerts control, as evidenced by clouds of comets.
