Program Description

Event Details

This program will be delivered via Zoom and will be streamed to our Kingsley Room. If you want to watch the program from home, register here.

Join us in this exploration of the night sky.  We will examine the moon, planets, and the constellations that are visible this time of year – where they are and how to find them in the sky. We will talk just a little bit about navigating by the stars. While we will focus on the traditional “Western” view of the sky, which is Greek and Roman in origin, we will also briefly explore the diversity of the night sky by seeing one or two constellations from other cultures around the world.
