Description

Join us at the Blake Planetarium for our feature presentation Halloween: Celestial Origins, a fulldome exploration of the history of Halloween and its astronomical origins. In addition, a brief showing of Seasonal Stargazing will highlight the most prominent and easy-to-find stars and constellations of the fall season.

About Halloween: Celestial Origins (approximately runtime 25 minutes)
"Vampires, witches, goblins, and other spooky creatures! What do you associate with Halloween? Trick-or-Treating, costumes, or something more… Be it ghoulish or ghostly, Halloween is an astronomical holiday! Experience the history of Halloween and how it fits into the seasons as a 'cross-quarter day.' From Celtic roots around the harvest and bonfires to modern celebrations, see why the night is celebrated as one of spirits from beyond and sweet treats! See how Samhain, and All Saints Day would eventually transform into Halloween. Traverse the night sky and learn what planets, constellations, and stars will be out on your Halloween evening. A fun filled program for the whole family!"
