PLANETARIUM – “A Part of the Sky Called Orion”
January 29 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
“A Part of the Sky Called Orion” looks at how three different ancient cultures looked at the same part of the sky we may know as the Greek constellation Orion.
The show focuses on the Greek, Egyptian, and Inupiaq cultures along with their different star stories and images using the night sky. It is a treat for the whole family with wonderful art, music and storytelling.
The show was produced in-house by Bays Mountain Productions and designed to look at the big ideas that have guided human understanding of the cosmos and its patterns in the sky.
The show will be followed by a tour of our current night sky using our stunning Carl Zeiss Starmaster ZKP-4 star projector.
Show length ~40 min.
