Look up at the night sky and what do you see? If you’re in the Bay Area, probably a few stars, maybe a planet, and the Moon. But what if you were high up in the mountains and away from the city lights, what would you see then? Can you name that particular constellation? Or any? We know we can’t and that’s why we’ve reached out to Samuel Singer to help us.
The stars and night sky provide mystical stories and symbols of hopes and dreams, ancient techniques of navigation and even life on Earth. The Universe might be infinitely vast and astronomers are still uncovering new information about it; they undoubtedly will be for a very long time!
Join us with astronomy educator Samuel Singer for a webinar that will explore the night sky and reveal how we are connected to the Cosmos. This webinar will be interactive and provide the audience with many opportunities to ask Sam your celestial questions. We can’t wait for you to come along with us on this journey to explore the night sky! We look forward to hosting you for this exciting and exploratory conversation.
