Life Story of a Star (WWW Tour) Exploring the Milky Way (WWW Tour)
The Lake Afton Public Observatory will be
presenting a special program on the star lore of Native Americans. Just as
the ancient Greeks and Romans have their "star stories," Native American
tribes have constellations and stories that are unique to them. This program
will give you an opportunity to sit around a camp fire as you listen to
wonderful Native American star stories, and find out how the sky affected
Native American life.
The event will take place in the field behind the Observatory building. There will be no admission charge to this special presentation, although normal admission charges will apply for the regular Observatory program.
NOTE: There will be a limited number of chairs available so to insure your comfort, you may wish to bring a folding chair or blanket to sit on. A good bug repellent is also advised.
