The Night Sky: A Cultural Perspective and Beyond

Featuring exciting video footage, this program by astrophysicist Kevin Manning gives a historical account of how the settlers and Native Americans viewed the constellations and their significance to these and other cultures. He will also give an astronomical perspective on the stars making up these constellations. A powerful telescope will be set up outdoors for viewing the craters on the moon, the rings of Saturn and other beautiful objects in the night sky, weather permitting.
