Explorations in Natural Sciences
Astronomy at the Garden - Summer
Now - July 23, 2014
Wednesday | 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Spend a celestial evening in the Garden as we explore the desert's night sky with Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space Exploration and their STARLAB Portable Planetarium. Our journey begins with an overview of the constellations and what stars mean to us, and what they meant to the native people who lived in the Sonoran Desert hundreds of years ago. We will discover what stars told them about food, health, mythology and what stars tell us today! Please wear comfortable clothing and your favorite socks; no shoes are allowed inside the STARLAB. During the program, participants will be asked to sit on the ground in a cross-legged position.
