Coming Up: “Constellations across the Cultures”

Written and produced by Hatter Planetarium students and staff, with insights from Gettysburg College faculty, this is our own full-dome show created in Spring 2017.
Sunday, September 17, at 2:30 and 4:00
Thursday, September 21, at 12 Noon.
You might look into the night sky and see a hunter, a bear, or a harp. But what about a drinking gourd, fish trap, or meat ant?  We’ll use the full-dome, immersive environment of the planetarium to explore what constellations are, the history of our familiar set, and how the same groups of stars have been imagined by different cultures at different times. Running time about 40 minutes, including a bonus live sky tour.
The Hatter Planetarium is located on the first floor of Masters Hall. The show is free and the public is welcome. First-come, first-seated; the doors close when the show begins.
