Spring Equinox & The Night Sky
March 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Each spring, we see nature’s changes all around us as trees blossom, birds migrate, and animals revive from winter’s slumber. The origin of all these changes is up in the sky, as the Sun returns to the northern hemisphere, making our days longer and warmer. We’ll explore the way this happens and the ceremonies which people celebrate to mark the March Equinox. We will also take a look at the constellations of Spring, from a pair of bright galaxies in the head of the Great Bear to a whole cluster of them in the arms of Virgo. We’ll also get a sneak preview of an April shower of shooting stars.
