“Astronomy and Theatre: Dark Theatres Inspired by Dark Skies” by D. Glen Vanderbilt, Jr., OWU theatre professor
This new series will celebrate astronomy’s contribution to the multicultural heritage of all people who inhabit our planet. It will give a glimpse of the effects the stars and planets have on our history, religion, literature, and politics. After each lecture, weather permitting, Observatory staff and volunteers will point telescopes at some of the astronomical targets that have inspired works of art and other endeavors.
Reservations are strongly recommended.
