Battery Park City Parks Presents: Stories Under the Stars
Sat, March 25, 2017, 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT
In the third installment of the Stories Under the Stars series, we will be celebrating in anticipation of the first day of spring, or "vernal equinox." Children and families will be introduced to the relationship between the sun and the earth and how that relates to the daily changes in our day and night. Spoiler alert: an "equinox" is a calendar date when both day and night are equal, and "vernal" is Latin for spring!
Activities will include a hands-on activity where we measure the relative distance between the sun and the earth. We will also be making constellation jars -- please bring a glass jar and lid with you if you have one!
Activities designed for children ages 6+, Pre-registration is required.
