Wednesday, January 29, 2020 @ 6:30 pm - 7:45 pm

Join guest instructor Trevor Chandler inside his planetarium for this amazing program (families welcome and encouraged). This planetarium show introduces the history of navigating using the stars. It reviews why stellar navigation was developed, as well as how the North Star, Polaris, can be used to determine compass points or to estimate latitude. The planetarium will be used to simulate how the stars appear to change when viewed from different latitudes on Earth. Is there such a thing as a South Star?

Recommended for ages 10 and up. All registrants under age 16 must be accompanied by an adult.

SEATING ARRANGEMENTS: The planetarium dome is 5m in diameter. It is a small but intimate space and therefore necessary to be seated on the floor during the presentation. A small foam cushion is provided. For those with mobility issues, the dome is wheelchair accessible and chair seating can be made available for up to three guests if requested in advance.

Guest Instructor Trevor Chandler
