Welcome to the William Brish Planetarium
5:30 Sesame Street: One World, One Sky
7:00 We Are Stars
Tuesday January 23, 2018
Tuesday, January 23, 2018
This show looks at the big ideas that have guided human understanding of the cosmos and its patterns in the sky. A PART OF THE SKY CALLED ORION tells about the Greek, Egyptian, and Inupiaq cultures. We learn how each viewed the same stars, but had different stories and images. Told in first-person in the context of the teller’s life, we experience their ancient star lore and imagery.
A skillfully woven tapestry of star tales and Native American legends, combined with constellation identification, star-hopping, and astronomy tidbits — all told from the unique viewpoint of a cowboy astronomer who has traveled the world plying his trade and learning the sky along the way. One of the absolute best Classic Planetarium Programs, remade for full-dome viewing!
