Season of Light
This family-oriented program focuses on winter holiday traditions from many cultures, and how they have been used for millennia to light up this darkest and coldest of seasons. It also showcases some of our more light-hearted customs--such as giving gifts, kissing under the mistletoe, and decorating Christmas trees. The program highlights some of the winter constellations, demonstrates the cause of the four seasons and the meaning of the winter solstice, and even gives some astronomical possibilities for the Star of Bethlehem.
October 23rd Partial Eclipse
We had over 300 people come out to see the partial solar eclipse with us on October 23rd 2014! We would especially like to thank the Central Valley Astronomers and Professor Fred Ringwald for bringing their telescopes and their expertise.
