MAH | Skywatching: “What’s Your Sign?”

April 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

“What’s Your Sign?” The Constellations of the Zodiac

We’ll use planetarium software to identify constellations of the zodiac, learn why they’re associated with particular dates (but maybe not the dates you were expecting), and discover the scientific reason it’s worth learning to identify zodiac constellations—spoiler: it’s a way to find planets. Note: This is a lesson on astronomy, not astrology.
