The Planetarium Show on Friday December 6 has been cancelled due to a Winter Weather Advisory
Corning Community College Planetarium show for Friday December 6th & 20th, 2013 will be "Winter Wonders"
"Winter Wonders" looks at the winter solstice, the point at which the noontime sun is lowest in the sky, and religious and cultural events surrounding it. The show follows two teenage girls, Jackie and Michelle, as they learn about the solstice and explore its influence around the world. The program not only looks at Jewish and Christian traditions, but also explores the customs of Native Americans, Inuit, Incans and peoples of central Africa and China. The event closes with a look at monuments built by prehistoric peoples to celebrate the winter solstice
Hope to see you there
