The 35-minute show will run on the planetarium’s regular schedule until mid-December (Tuesdays and Thursdays at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., and Saturday morning at 10:30a.m.).
“’Season of Light’ describes the legends associated with the stars that appear during the Christmas season such as Orion the Hunter, Taurus the Bull, and Leo the Lion,” writes Dr. Rhett Herman, Professor of Physics, and director of the planetarium.
Narrated by Noah Adams of NPR’s “All Things Considered and appropriate for all ages, the show talks about all things celestial and winter traditional including the Star of Bethlehem, Jolly Old Saint Nick, holiday lights and candles, exploring traditions of gift-giving and solstice festivals. Special showings can be scheduled for groups of 20 and more.
