Planetarium Theater Show: Season of Light
December 21 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Explore the history and development of many of the world’s most endearing holiday customs, all of which involve lighting up the winter season. We will explore historical, religious and cultural rituals during the time of winter solstice of not only Christian and Jewish cultures, but also Celtic, Nordic, Roman, Irish, Mexican and Hopi. Learn why the Earth has seasons and the possible astronomical explanations for a “Star over Bethlehem.” A “Tonight’s Sky” program showing seasonal constellations and planets currently in the night sky will follow the show.
Cost: Free for members, $2.00 per person for non-members.
