Join Asad Raza and Cleveland Museum of Natural History astronomers Nick Anderson, Peter Hedman, and Destiny Thomas for a guided exploration of the sculpture, as well as interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, and safe solar viewing (weather permitting). The astronomy team from the Museum will lead kinesthetic activities that explain the reasons for the seasons and why we see different constellations at different times of year. Visitors will be invited to make models of useful astronomical tools, such as sundials and planispheres. Crafts will encourage children and adults to put their creativity to the test and invent their own unique star patterns. Visitors will also have the opportunity to make solar observations using pinhole cameras and shade no. 14 welder’s glass.

No registration required.
