Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this partly-cloudy Tuesday.

Sometimes you just need a little sunshine to cope with the dreary winter. Abrams Planetarium offers a super-charged dose of warmth with their educational program "Solar Superstorm."

The show, which is about our own sun, is followed by an educational talk with MSU Professor Robert Stein of the Department of Physics and Astronomy.

7:30 p.m. FREE. Abrams Planetarium, 400 E. Grand River Ave., East Lansing. (517) 355-4672.
