Star Stories: Discovering the Night Sky | Session 2
Angela Tempo, MA
Astronomy, Cultural History
Our ancestors knew the stars like the back of their hands. They spent generations observing the heavens for patterns that could be used to understand and navigate through the world better. We will explore stories from different cultural heritages, from Greek mythology encapsulating heroes and villains, to important life lessons taught through various Native American cultures. Join me for an evening staring at the stars!
