MYSTERIES OF THE WINTER SKY WITH MARY STEWART ADAMS
LOCATION: The Offield Family Viewlands
We will begin the night with storytelling, followed by a lantern walk. In February, the northern hemisphere is still turned away from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, facing the deep reaches of space, where the mighty constellation Orion dominates the scene. The Pleiades grace the night with their charms, and on this evening, Venus will be the evening star, radiant in her position to the West over Lake Michigan. We will gather with Star Lore Historian Mary Stewart Adams to marvel at the beauty with poetry, history, and cultural tales. See you under the moon, stars, and the velvety blue-black of winter skies.
