Under African Skies – Nature Center Planetarium
February 3, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 4:45 pm
An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Sunday and Saturday, repeating until February 25, 2018
The Nature Center in Rock Creek Park (5200 Glover Road) is hosting a special planetarium program on Saturdays and Sundays in February called “Under African Skies.”
Description: Sure we know about the stars and constellations in the northern hemisphere, but below the horizon each night in the southern hemisphere, there’s a different view of space. Join a ranger for a unique look at sub-Saharan Africa’s night sky and star stories in honor of Black History Month. The African American “Night Sky to Freedom” will also be discussed. Recommended for ages five to adult.
