Stories from the Summer Stars @ Astronomy Education Building
Aug 30 @ 7:30 pm

We often hear the fanciful stories of the constellations of stars in the planetarium or under the night sky. But in “Stories from the Summer Stars,” Wilderness Center Astronomy Club member Dave Gill will introduce you to some of the stories of the stars themselves. They may look pretty much alike under the sky, but they are fantastically varied having fascinating stories of their own. Join TWC Astronomy Club members and learn about such luminaries as Vega and Deneb, as well as lesser known but equally intriguing stars like SS Cygni and Barnard’s star. The Astronomy Club meets in the Astronomy Education Building.
