To celebrate light during the darkest time of the year, the Science Museum of Minnesota will inspire family, friends and coworkers of all ages with the second installment of Illumination: Light Up The Night, an interactive showcase of activities and events embracing the celebration of light for all.

Gail Fridlund and Christina Martinez of the Science Museum of Minnesota joined KARE 11 to discuss a few fun activities you can do in the dark to embrace the Winter Solstice, including Aurora Borealis.

Activities at the event include creating your own personal Aurora Borealis with paper towels and pastels; mixing up a batch of glowing slime with everyday household materials, writing a secret message in invisible ink only visible under UV light, and crafting a parachute to drop off a balcony or staircase.

The events will take place on three weekends from Dec. 13 to 15, Dec. 20 to 22 and Dec. 27 to 29 from 5 to 9 p.m. Tickets and more information are available online here.
