MAH | Skywatching: Greek Myths & the Spring Sky

May 26, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

We’ll combine science and storytelling and learn to find some of the constellations in the current night sky that are associated with Greek myths. You’ll hear how the bears Ursa Major and Ursa Minor got their really long tails, why Corvus the Crow will eternally regret telling a lie about a water snake, and why Hercules is the reason the stars of Cancer the Crab are so dim.
