Stargazing– Winter Constellations

Kuehn Conservation Area, Monday, March 12 and Tuesday, March 13 from 7:30-9 p.m.

DCCB invites you to walk out under the star filled night skies, cast your arms up over your head– and proclaim Tu Omp I Av Tu Weap. Your pronouncement is one presented by native peoples as they greeted the beauty of the starry night skies each night. What do these native words mean? What message might they have for us in 2018 ?– join us to learn.

Our night skies are filled with stories written in the stars. Each constellation holds a story and a connection for you to our place. Join us for this stargazing party and we will teach you how to build and read a star chart, measure distances in the sky and how to find and identify the major constellations in the winter sky. The real party will begin next as we venture outside to read a few star stories and come to better know our wild place. We invite you to join us in this stellar library, with books written not in letters and sentences– but in star light. Join us in the night time wilds of Dallas County as we share a few winter constellation stories. This program is dependent on clear skies. If cloudy, we will reschedule. Registration required for this program.
