I love to look at the Sky and so did my ancestors!

Since prehistory, the motions of the stars, planets, sun and moon have shaped the world-view of ancient cultures. In the dark skies of Kingston, we will explore the wonders of the night sky as the ancients saw it, known as “naked eye astronomy”. You will learn the basics of how the sky looks and moves, the positions and appearances of some of the most conspicuous constellations of stars, and explore the myths and legends that many cultures have told about the sky. Presenter John T. Stocke is a retired professor of astronomy from the University of Colorado. www.casaweb.colorado.edu/astr2000

Wine and beer will be available from Black Range Vineyards.

Cost: general admission $10; $5 for seniors, children under 12, & SCAC members*
